I am thankful that the expansion tank decided to split as I returned home and safely parked. I followed this DIY and found the only part that failed was the ET, it split right down the length of the tank. A claw hammer and towel method extracted the tank in two or three attempts. After buying a replacement, coolant and distilled water, I was up and running in about an hour including a little cleaning while the airbox was off. I bled the system, drove around the block and sweat it while watching the temp gauge return to the normal position. A week later, I am slowly starting to forget about the experience and get back to enjoying my vehicle.
