I was driving home today after work and everything was fine for 99% of the drive. I had about 1/4 mile of straight road before I reached to my apartment. So I nailed it because 1-I like to accelerate, 2-I needed to take a dump bad. As soon as I drove into the apt complex I hear the serpentine belts squealing like crazy. I popped the hood and saw steam everywhere on the passenger side. The upper coolant elbow had split in two! I had replaced both elbows about 1 year ago because they were leaking. Also this week I inspected the engine bay (including the elbows which were fine up until now) and saw no signs of its coming failure. Wtf! I changed them out with some more dorman plastic crap until my aluminum elbows come in.
Moral of the story, plastic sucks, get aluminum elbows.
And btw I made it to the toilet in time Lolz.
