Actually....you are right! That is the definition of a fanatic. I have my paranoid moments as well. In this case, I am pretty confident that your car is fine. Enjoy the ride.

I beg to differ - on the manual tranny electric cooling fan, it is really quiet 99% of the time. Just idle your car to normal operating temp, open the hood, and shine a flashlight into the fan. It...

Either you did not bleed the system properly or you have too much coolant in the system. BTW, the expansion tank cap is not a pressure relief valve.
