    i am big fan of the coolant vaccum fill tool, but keep in mind that the coolant sytstem is run under pressure. the vaccum tool could pull the seams of those pipes tighter and hide possible leaks. under pressure any cracks will expand.

    you seem to DIY alot of maintenance....you may as well just replace the pipes. for 3 hrs and $100, you could save yourself needing an engine.

    Even with the ultra-gauge the window of error is so tight - if it ever bursts when you're in the HOV lane doing 75mph with 5 lanes of traffic to your right and no exits available and your Ultra-gauge says "engine temp!" you're about 60 seconds away from a complete engine fail. I consider cross-overs to be 50,000 mile consumables personally. :)

    My crossover is being replaced as I write this at 67,000 miles. These Swiss Army knives of vehicles are certainly not for the faint of heart. I’m going to give this one more try and if it doesn’t run for two months in a row without incident it goes up for sale. Love it do death but it’s apparently too high maintenance for me.

    They are no Toyota Corolla but they are not too bad once sorted. Still $$ to keep in good shape though. Oh and they guzzle premium at an astonishing rate lol.
