Just a REMINDER.

Check your antifreeze.

Don't matter if you use a refractometer or Hydrometer.

Don't even matter is the car hasn't moved in a year.

Check it.

and if you can't say when the last time you changed it was make that change. the acid that builds up when iron and water lay around will eat up a lot of stuff but the copper goes first. the blue combo gets that done today. we will change the thermostat housing also. I can't believe that it has formed this much rust just sitting there.

Better change the bypass hose also, because it isn't going to last very much longer, without blowing out.
