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
future :-)
