Any other leaks? Coolant level steady?

I have an LS that had the same problem. Because these cars do not have PCV valves, your bleeder may need to be replaced. They are great cars, and very high tech even for a 14 years old. Speaking of age, 14 might mean it's time to have the hoses and water pump inspected too. I have 205,000 miles on mine, and it's been great! The repairs are on par with any other luxury car, so staying ahead of the game and shopping around is very important. Also, if you have a V8, check eBay if there is a need to replace the ignition coils.

I had the same issues with my 2003 LS and had to replace everything including the radiator all the hose, thermostat. I was like a guessing game and it was costly due to my limited experience with cars.
