Hi, I am also here in Denver very near rose medical,
I am also having problems with my coolant temp sensor, after 30 minutes of
driving in I-25, the coolant temp alarm sounds of but the coolant needle is
halfway. hmm. could i get this multi sens temp at autozone?
and the classic stalling.(turbo bypass valve)
I had my cars maintenance done with werner's too.
btw. would it be nice if we could have an audifans sticker logo stamp on our
car, so we could know a fellow lister?.
