I'm not sure why my name is now in the subject line.
I did not post about this issue, I only responded about it.
The lister who experienced this issue does have the digital dash and did
suspect that the coolant level was a bit low.
As to why it would be a bit low, well there are many potential reasons.
Mine did this for years and years and I just kept topping it up. I later
found a slightly loose hose somewhere and when I resolved that, my water
pump started leaking. Sweet. ;-)
Since it's last timing belt replacement was in 1993, only about 50k miles
ago, it is up next for my attention after I get the pump to bomb hose
replaced on the 90 v8 (today hopefully).
