guess i'll update as well...
Classic yellow warning followed immediately by red temp icon. Topped off coolant twice, temp icon did not return. Forward 2 days later on the way to work on the highway service engine soon light came on. Fan has been running extremely hard and loud.
Got the following quotes on parts from friend at the stealer.
$376.32 for Electric water pump
$80 for the Therm.
I also need a new battery, didn't ask about that, but im guessing once all said and done and for him to do the work i'll be upwards of 1k.
Not sure if I'm going to fix or trade at this point, just put a few hundred into it last week for maintenance.
