On May 23 2000 the vehical was brought in for an over heating problem. The radiator was diagnosned as the problem and replaced. Then on Oct 17 the vehicle was brought in for a heating problem. The problem was diagnosed as a blown head gasket. The gasket was replaced and the engine was flushed. The work was done per bulletin 99-06-012-012. I just discovered today that the engine has a rattling sound. It sounds like a bucket of bolts.
