My Radiator Just Shit The Bed.

I’ve known for awhile that my Galant will need a new radiator. Now it NEEDS a radiator. The plastic end cap separated from the metal core here.

This picture was taken after the car was already shut off.

The snow was due to a moment of “oh shit my car is shooting out coolant like geyser what the heck do I do?” I got back in the car saw that temp was slowly going up, and shut her down.

The weird thing is the temp gauge was reading totally normal before I came home, but at the last stop sign I hit a big cloud of steam came up. I dismissed it assuming it was just from a big puddle I had just driven through.

You should have seen the eye roll I got when I walked in and said “hey babe... so my car needs a new radiator...” right after I had just gone out for a drive. The missus is not happy. So it’s time for that aluminum Mishimoto radiator I’ve been planing on. Although I wasn’t planing on buying it until like March. And ATM I don’t have a car.

Also I’m going to get analog temp, bolt, and oil gauges
