Hi Steve,

It's done. I'll replace the coil when I get around to it, which will probably be never.

Using the "Upper Hose Squeeze Analysis Method" the coolant system pressure appears to be back where it belogs. Before, I was able to really squeeze the hoses; now I can't.

Also, should I expect to see some increase in exhaust steam, given that coolant system pressure has been abnormally low for about a year and some head gasket leakage seems likely until the natural seal re-forms? (That happened once before under different circumstances.)
