I really appreciate the Stack Overflow community.

VP of a medium company, B.S. in Computer Science, currently working on creating revenue generating subscription based web applications built on MVC3 / IIS7.5 / ASP.NET4 / C# / MSSQL / MySQL / AJAX. Technology that I have used or learned about: java, javascript, jQuery, c, c#, c++, sql, oracle, fortran, pascal, assembly, basic, VB, F#, J2EE, J2ME, objective-c, etc.

I am the only person at the company who deals with software development making me fill the rolls of a software designer, programmer, dba, server admin, and graphics artist.

My main goals when designing and coding are: how can I make the user experience easiest, and how can I reduce redundancy.

When developing software, I take a duality approach where I design an approximate Waterfall model as a map, and then traverse through the map using a SCRUM agile approach.

The first thing you would try is in essence what I did. See my edit for more details.

Good point about the cold water in a hot engine. Although I did not end up doing this, I had considered buying a gallon of water from a gas station and might not have even thought about this common scenario which can be easy to overlook.

Kind of banking on a small leak. If it is out of hand then AAA will pick up the slack. Mostly I was concerned with whether or not to just use water in the system while testing to see how bad the leak/situation was.

I went to the dealership and got some coolant from them to use figuring it would most likely help at least a little to have some in there. Do you think I should stick with water or use a mixture? Silly question: the overflow reservoir should not be empty, right?
