yea Parents had been driving the car. I had originally brought it in for this a couple weeks afer i bought the car...they said they werent getting any codes off of it and that of course, naturally, they couldnt get it to act up at all. The timing chain and water pump were done a month ago by this same mechanic, he replaced the thermostat as well and then they ended up having to flush the coolant a couple times (they said there was brown gunk it it) previous owner,another mechanic from another local shop, said it was radiator fix leak...makes sense i know most of those are pretty thick brown stuff. Im still slightly worried about that temp gauge and rad fans...never had that problem before and from reading some of threads it doesnt seem normal.
My mechanic usually works with dealerships he will probably end up bringing it to one next week, closest one from my hometown is a good 45minutes away.
