Well it SEEMS that the viscous fan is alright and the radiator is still brand new.What I actually did was blast the heater last night and let the windows down and open the sunroof and the temp would go down. I guess the heater "trick" helped to lower the temp to just above 85 degrees until I got it back on the highway and could cut it off. I really hope that it isn't a head gasket (and so far no smoking nor water in the oil, etc). I'm going to check her out again at lunchtime with a short drive to see how she acts.At least she didn't have a crap load of coolant on the ground like yesterday. I'm thinking of changing out the thermostat, and also getting her a leakdown test for the compression, etc sometime soon. Anything else?
