1. When I replaced the coolant I jacked up the front, warmed it up and burped it but about a teaspoon leaked from underneath then stopped. Can a head gasket leak coolant without mixing it with the oil? My coolant and oil are still clean but it bothered me a bit. It did get rid of the river runs through it sound it had at start up.
2. Above 65 it gets squirrely in front wheel drive mode but the tires are not the same brand, however they are the same size and inflated to 33 psi. (Taking them down from 40 helped and it was windy but I have a feeling it would have been a handful without the wind. Is that common with this model? Around town it is stable. I was wondering if a new set of tires and/or shocks/struts would help?
3. I am fairly mechanical but this whole - don't shift into 4 wheel drive on pavement thing has me stumped almost as much as the unwinding it thing does. Can somebody explain it mechanically in plain terms. I heard a weird sound when making a tight circle, I think right. It was a rattling like a bunch of ball bearing clattering or something. I even turned a cookie in the grass in my field to make sure it was back in front wheel mode before leaving.
4. Did any of the 86 GL's come with A/C or is there just not enough power for it?
It seems weird that they would make a car you can shift into 4 wheel drive on the fly and then have to find gravel to properly get it back into front wheel drive. Just me. Thanks for all of your help!
