I was saving you for the hard stuff. I figured this one should be simple. But, after thinking I had it fixed three times, maybe not.
I do have a new theory. I needed to use the car the other day because I had to haul something too long for the Benz. I checked the levels before I left, and had to add maybe a third of a qt of coolant. I did about 30 miles round trip, and had no overheating even when driving faster than the other traffic on the interstate.
I havenít driven it since, but this symptom of having it work the first time after I do something, and then having the problem return has happened before.
So, now I think maybe one or both of the radiator caps are bad, and when it cools it sucks air into the system. The caps look pretty old.
Do you think I was onto anything with the style of thermostat with the little bleed hole? I was considering drilling a small hole in the plate of the new style.
