As an add, are the valve checks up to date?

Plugs are new, I 've replaced them about 200 miles ago as part of regular maintenance (changed oil and oil filter too). Valves, I did them at 35K miles, 2 got new shims bcs they were close to tighter side, but I will check them again. Cooling system pressure test, I'm still trying to find someone that can perform that, sadly when you live in a place where fine tool is synonym for smaller hammer some of the specialized stuff is hard to to.

I would not want to troubleshoot any farther until the pressure test is done.
You could be just spinning your wheels looking elsewhere when you may have a leak.
This test is not 100% as I have seen where the system will not leak cold, but that is very very very rare.

I understand, I will try to rig some DIY tester and will post back if I succeed.
