It was the thermostat

Hey guys,

Thanks for all of your help. After having a hard time figuring out what I would do with the drained coolant, and between a few diaper changes for my two little ones...I decided to take her in to a new indie I found. He took her for a spin with me and watched the temp gage. Then opened her up and checked the fins. Then he thoroughly inspected the car on the lift.

The thermostat replacement and complete radiator flush ran me $100 plus tax. And I found a GREAT new mechanic that is local (Foreign Motor Works in Quincy, MA). My car is back to running like new again

I appreciate all of the help. If I didn't have two little ones I would have tackled this. At the very least I have a better understanding of my vehicle.

Thanks again,
Michael
