    Bumps in the road. Developed leak in coolant hose from water pump to bypass valve and possibly bypass valve. Remounted/replaced. Dexcool does not taste sweet at all (orange), but does not sting the eyes as much as I thought. At least I let it cool some before replacing the hose. Now just...

    Ozark Laser Engraving John Lifer Jr. Found him on Etsy. I got 3 for $43. They are thick and look better than OEM.
