Also check to see that the serpentine belt is not worn and slipping when it gets hot. How is the engine temperature - over 215 degrees may point to a cooling fan issue?

The entire seat/chair does not have to be removed, but the bottom cushion does. The material has to be violently stretched to fit over the cushion. So, if the seat material is compromised in any...

When that happened to me with my 05, all dashboard lights and gauges going crazy, it was a faulty ignition switch that was covered in a recall. See if your model is covered in that recall.

I would be concerned that the shop that replaced the engine may not be able to properly diagnose the problem. Changing a coil without testing is typically done by parts changers that have no clue...

I did some research before replacing my radiator a few years back. Found that many of those manufactured in China use thinner aluminum and thinner plastic parts.

Confirm the source of the leak before buying any new parts.

I recommend OEM only. Rockauto has one in stock I believe. The Chinese stuff is very questionable in terms of materials and...
