Holy Crap . . Coolant leak!

Oh man this was ugly. I had just shut off the engine when I got home from work. I get out of the car, and I hear a slight crack, then PSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Next thing you know smoke is coming out of the hood, and coolant is flowing across the ground in a huge swath. Ever see in the movies when some one hits the ground and blood comes gushing onto the pavement? That's what it looked like.

After some investigation, I found a huge crack down the side of the expansion tank. Jeeez, I just got done ordering all the parts for my fan delete mod, and some new hoses. I guess I have one more part to order

At least she was kind enough to wait till I got home to spill her guts all over the pavement . . . oh well, it's back to driving the Honda Insight for a few days till everything arrives.

well at least it didn't break on you somewhere in the middle of nowhere, or on your way home. Good luck with getting it fixed tho.

^^Not too bad . . I got the new tank from BavAuto for $65. What sucks is you have to buy the radiator cap seperately for another 10 bucks. And the car will be sitting around for about a week before I get everything in, and find the time to do all the work.

They're stock seats, but I made the ///M decals out of vinyl . . . we have a full graphics setup at my job, including a decal/vinyl plotter. . .
