> So I ask for any wisdom while I cool off. > -Sean ok here is my 2 cents. first check the battery ground. be sure the ground is good clean and tight. Next check the battery positive cable to the starter. ditto. Also check to be sure that the battery terminals are in good shape ... no corrosion (check for corrosion at the wire where it leaves the terminal) The clicking coule either be not enought current reaching the starter solenoid (due to high resistance which would result from the above) or it could be a bad starter solenoid. Loss of coolant is troublesome, but since you mention that the oil is clean and I assume no trace of colant in it that tends to rule out a blown head gasket. Also I assume no white smoke out of the pipe. So a possibility is a coolant leak ... perhas a subtle one ... do you smell coolant in the car or when you get out .. or when you open the hood? Another good possibility is that the fan(s) are not comming on due to either a bad relay (in the realy box) or a bad thermo switch. Next time it runs hot turn check that the fans are running ... if not you can switch on the A/C which activates both fans through a different relay. hope this helps! bob c ps no I do not think your 900s is going to die soon. Takes a LOT to kill them :-) * Sent from RemarQ http://www.remarq.com The Internet's Discussion Network *The fastest and easiest way to search and participate in Usenet - Free!
