The only one I've had was in my '99 R/T when I hit the rev limiter. It caused a belt to roll over in the pulley grooves and it came off two days later leaving me without power steering. Then when replacing the belt my dad knocked some tools in the engine compartment and a couple days later a wrench that had apparently been out of sight in between the fan shroud and radiator was jarred loose on 270 when the fans were on wiping out one fans blades, cracking the shroud and puncturing the radiator costing me almost a grand to get fixed.

If I sit in park and let the motor bump of the rev limiter, the car will start to loose coolant around the water neck. This in the only time it will leak and will stop as soon I stop reving. Guess I need a "Hi-flow" thermostat :lol: !!!!
