Subject: Re: steam at radiator (c900)


The exhaust leak turned out to be easy to find, as it was a giant crack in the intermediate pipe (between the catalytic converter and the mid muffler), just aft of the collar where it bolts to the catalytic converter. I undertook to replace it myself, which was successful though a pain in the ass: the bolts holding the old collar to the catalytic converter were rusted beyond hope and had to be sawed off; and the intermediate pipe was separated from the mid muffler only after extensive heating with a blowtorch and much swearing. And regarding the steam at the radiator, I dumped some Prestone brand radiator leak stopper into the system-- only time will tell whether that helps anything. John
