    Unless it's the electric fan, maybe leaving the key on lets the computer get a good fluid temp reading and and not run the fan when first started?????

    might want to try redline 5w30 for a run one time to see if it helps. The formula has many things that protect against dry starts. Nearly 10 times the moly as average.

    Checked the heat shields they seem fine. Not sure where to go from here, 2 local dealers both suck. 1 is the place i bought from. problem is it will have to stay overnight, on a cold day.
