Update: By the looks of it nobody cares or is interested, But as I was pulling it into the garage to start working, I noticed it had leaked some coolant. I tracked it down to somewhere toward the back of the motor but cannot pinpoint exactly where its coming from. It's about a quarter size leak overnight.
I decided to hell with it. Off to my mechanic it goes. If the coolant leak isn't horrible news, I'll have him do all the work. If it is bad... I suppose I'll junk it, or part it.
