Drove the car on a cool morning a short distance from my house (3-4 miles). Stopped at service station put it in park noticed a small amount of steam rising from the area of the radiator, temperature gauge had just barely moved off cold also noticed a small little puff of air noise coming from further up on the motor. That made me nervous of a head gasket leak. However I got in the car and went another twenty miles without an issue. The car has alluminum heads and I was told the radiator needed to be flushed and filled every two years and it was done last summer.
