While driving home Friday night, my 86 5000s quit. I suspect that it was
overheating since I was in stop and go traffic for about two hours
(Washington Beltway). After letting the car cool down, I was able to
drive home with no problem. My coolant sensor is intermittent so I
thought that it might have contributed to the problem (if it worked at
least I could see if the engine was getting too hot). Since I read some
time back on this list that someone resoldered his sensor, I thought
about doing the same. However, in trying to remove the upper radiator
hose connector, I broke one of the bolts that holds it on (rusted, I think).
Can anyone give me advice how to remove the broken part of the bolt from
the head? And is it worth trying to repair the sensor?
Thanks for any help.
