it turned out to be the t-stat after all...
i called Charlie up and he said it was the t-stat right away, went to pick it up, car almsot overheated on the way there, it was cool that he wasn't too busy to change it for me, very cool dude, you can tell he knows his sh!t, and i can honestly say that noone but Charlie is allowed to work on my car....ever!!!
Thanks dude, I appreciate it!
See ya in 2 weeks (need a few things done)!!
