the pickup tube on the coolant reservoir. sounds loco, but as a mechanic toiled with this very problem only to find a small tube about 1/8 and 8" long should be connected to the cap. if this isn't there the overflow will not work properly. I'll buy you lunch if you go to the overfill tank pull off the black stopper and the little tube is swimming in the coolant, rather than being connected....solution, stuff that tube where it used to belong and cross your fingers it doesn't happen again!

you're cute btw~

be sure to fill the reservior to the line there. not full. we need expansion, that's what the little tube that fell off is supposed to help with. look on the side, you'll see the line. fill up to this line with coolant.
