:( :(
o.k. so i was doing the coolant bypass mod today when i dropped a damn rubber stopper into the area under the tb. so i take out the filter box and then i am able to reach it, also it makes it much easier to get to the lower tube on the tb. well, unfortunately, i did not put a rag in the tb, b/c i thot i was only gonna be in there for a sec to grab the plug, and a few drops of coolant, i wanna say no more than a teaspoon, but i am not exactly sure how much, dripped into the tb, i guess from my hand or a passing dripping something, it's weird b/c there was almost no leakage during the mod, just a little from the bottom tube. i cleaned the tb as much as i could and quickly put everything back together and started the engine to check for leaks and to listen for anything "odd". i heard what i thought was a slight squeaking noise or metal on metal noise, that i did not remember hearing before, so i got worried and decided to drive it a while hoping to dry out the manifold before anything bad happens. when i came home about 5-10 minutes later, there were no leaks and no noise. I just want to know if there is anything else i should be checking to make sure nothing bad happens now?

+1 to everyone...just don't drive it hard...it's still a water mixture and if enough gets into the block...hydro lock CAN occur. I would doubt it, but why push it? Do light driving for a full day or two

Also, If you need to ask this question you obviously are too retarded to do a mod. :shock:

If you need to personally attack EVERYONE, you obviously shouldn't be on a forum.

Reason #5009 why not to do a mod. Also, If you need to ask this question you obviously are too retarded to do a mod. :shock:

alecshawn, If you have nothing better to do than criticize other members and insult them, take it elsewhere.

Tell you what, alecshawn, we'll just shut down this thread and every other one you post in with insults until you get banned. How about that? You don't take subtle warnings to heart, so maybe an explicit one is in order. Need I explain further?

Unlocked for now. Alecshawn, keep it clean and stop with the abrasive comments and insults.
