    The pressurized expansion tank is what you want to be the problem if there is one. White smoke...I don't remember seeing any, but I'm not going back to look now.

    No blown head gasket for sure, I was watching it on the drive back. A strange one, didn't see any leakage trails in the usual spots that the 4.6 can have, couldn't see anything around the radiator. My buddy said he didn't smell antifreeze on the drive back either (he did have the heat on full blast just in case...poor guy, lol). I'll be power washing the engine tomorrow, maybe leaks will be easier to see with less crud under the hood.

    I'm betting on the pressure cap.

    If your looking at a quick fix on the battery give this a try

    Dump the old electrolyte out into a five gallon bucket and neutralize it with some baking soda
    Then get a gallon or distilled water and a bag of epson salt
    Mix four cups of epson salt with the distilled water and shake the gallon jug until all the salt is disolved
    Pour the distilled water and espon salt into the battery cells and put a charger on it for a few hours and bingo a next to new battery I kid you not

    I need an intervention

    After slithering though the ghetto on that last heap, I thought I would move up in the world and get another Wi State Patrol unmarked car. I always liked this color. Not sure yet if I'll keep it and dump my current 'keeper' beige one, or just sell it. I gotta stop buying these things, lol

    That's a sharp looking ride Andy, hope it runs well for you.

    Far better it is to try mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure. Than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.
