Any new cooling system components? Might want to investigate that. In a few months, overheat threads will probably be number one topic.....don't want to be posting with overheat problems.

Funny you bring that up. The guy I bought it from said that it will run hot after a while, but not over heat.

Question is, what does he define as "running hot?"
Second question is: how long till "running hot" leads to overheating?
Best not to take your chances.
Upgrade/repair before you end up finding out in the middle of nowhere.

Surprisingly, the word car appears first around 1300; carriage evolved from it, then horseless carriage, and, finally, back to car again as a shortened form."
So yes, you are driving a car.

Ah yes, I did some research and the Sport was indeed a model option in 93, and even before that. Mine was a base model as I said. Enjoy it! It's a fun ride!
