Re: Smoke when taking off from stop light

Likely valve seals or guides.

Re: An interesting brake rotor conundrum

Re: Overheating again

Overheating how?

Coolant boiling out of the surge tank?
High gauge reading into the red?

If you have AC that works does the cooling fan come on when the AC is turned on?

Re: Green Brake Fluid in 98 SL
