Here it is almost a year later & the Tbird overheated AGAIN going up Mt Tam. Steam blowing under hood, etc. AAA had to tow back to mechanic who fixed first time. I need to say that several times after it was 'repaired' my wife had to pull over due to temp gauge going way up w warning. Then it would be fine again, for awhile. Now we had this prob. Took in. SAME issue. Split thermostat housing. Hose, etc [I'm guessing to excess heat]. They 'tested' everything & said nothing showing as a problem. But as was under 2yr warranty they fixed it again. However now I'm afraid to go anywhere. Utility fan going on all the time running a lot, although hvnt seen gauge race up to top again as it did on mountain. What the hey? I read somewhere that Tbird needs a 'special' coolant. I'm wondering if it would makeTHAT big of a diff if that detail wasn't checked/used by mechanic.
