arrived at work this a.m. to find a trace of steam coming from the
grill and a 12" diam. puddle of coolant forming under the bow of the
avant...too dark at 7 a.m. to discern the source but it is up front on
the drivers side.  had no indication from the temp gauge.  will look at
lunch and see if the leak is obvious.  any thoughts on driving it to
the shop [about 20 miles away] in 16 F weather?  at the risk of putting
the bad mojo on myself,  the car has been bullit-proof reliable to this
point.  but then again,  it only has 60 k on it...which brings me to
the other question:  the t belt is original as far as i know.  should i
change it now?  dealer [yeah i know, but this one is run by a friend of
mine] says leave it until 70k...
