After an hour or so at a job I start to go home. 45 miles. I get halfway there and I just happened to glance at the gauge and it was just under the first warning line. WTF? Pull over wait a while till it cooled down and drove the rest of the way home with it just starting to climb back up. I pop the hood, feel the cap and nothing. It feels fine. I touch the secondary cap and it's a little hot. Once again Wtf? Grabbed the upper main hose and it's hot and looks like it's about to burst so I move on to the smaller hoses and give it a lil squeeze, then boom, steam and coolant is flying everywhere. Annnd again WTF! The nipple busted. So Napa has a radiator for 155 bucks. How long in labor should this be? /rant
