Oil Change, Exhaust, Transmission Fluid

The engine oil in my 1987 Chevrolet G20 Sportvan was changed today at 144,702 miles on the odometer.  I switched the engine oil from 5W-30 to 10W-30 today.

Also, I installed a cuff on the right bank exhaust tube in front of the rear axle and moved the resonator pipe so that it was further away from a nearby brake line. 

It appears that the transmission fluid is low?


Radiator Burped

I filled the radiator in my 1987 Chevy G-20 Sportvan with Car Quest All Vehicle 50/50 antifreeze at 144,528.0 miles on the odometer and I burped the system.  Before, the van's engine was heating up rapidly.  Now, it appears that the engine temperature is stable.
