Careful with that radiator. I had a slow seep (though I didnt know it was the radiator at the time since it was so minor), and then one day BAM the plastic tank split. I was lucky that I just so happened to have parked- prolly ten more miles and I would have ran low on coolant and started overheating. I refilled with distilled water and babied it 3 miles home.

You really really dont want to play with the cooling system- replace that leaker asap or you may end up needing a whole lot more than just a radiator.

I have a WP. And it's having a breakdown, double loading pages, opening new ones, and frustrating me in general. The RESPONSE I MEANT TO PUT reads as follows-
I need the money worse than I need it, and I can always rebuild it better next time.

You guys are aware that the steering wheel can be 'off' and the alignment be correct, right?
