: Okay so my car has been running a little hot today. Lower than the 3rd line but still higher then the 2nd. So I get home and smell coolant. Pop the hood. Hmm.. looks like coolant is coming from under the upper radiator hose.. I'll just tighten the hose clamp a little.. and KASWOOSH. My legs are covered with 180 degree coolant. Or is is hotter since it's steam. well, shit. Anyway, the good news is that I wore jeans and the flannel boxers today - thank God for casual Friday. The bad news is that I burned the shit out of my hands and legs and I still need a new Radiator. I called fluidyne and they said it's gonna be june/july before the aluminum one is ready. I seem to remember reading a post in the last couple months from someone who bought a replacement unit from one of the national chains. I couldn't find it in 15 mins of searching so maybe not..
: Anyway, if anyone has any new leads since the last time this thread surfaced, please let us know.

: Oh, and don't do what I did.
