Sigh. My car's getting worse. It doesn't overheat on the way to work (it's a two mile drive) but it's starting to if I go anywhere else, especially in heavy traffic, since it seems to be a function of time spent driving and not how hard I actually push the engine. It's still the 'momentary overheating followed by the cooling system kicking in' I was seeing before, but that can't be good for the engine. I'll have to get it fixed as soon as I can figure out where to take it -- NOT the dealer, I don't want to be carless for a week and then pay $1000 for the diagnosis, and have another three months to wait while they fix it -- and when I'll actually have time to do so.

Meanwhile, I'll be running the heater a lot, I guess, and hoping nothing actually catches fire.
