Ah yes…the car was crying. The radiator went out finally. Spent less than an hour changing it out and now it’s all better. I could’ve just bought some stop-leak from the parts store, but I really didn’t want to wait for the next leak to show up at a bad time.
The one thing I found odd was the amount of dead insects clogging the area between the a/c condenser and the radiator. Must’ve been the reason the thermostat went out in the first place. At least with a new radiator, there is one less thing to worry about now.
