re: '89 80 coolant problem/cappucino machine **FIXED**
Recently I wrote about my coolant system:

It's fixed! I had a talk with my dealer (without the car being present),
and he suggested that it could easily be the pressure cap on the coolant
system. The part was cheap ($15), and it seemed to explain all the
symptoms. Picked one up yesterday, put it on this morning, added coolant,
and went out to heat it up.
Works _great_. This is my least expensive offering to the gods ever.
Thanks to all who sent advice. More will probably be requested in the
