Many owners check them themselves. Some let a dealer do an actual adjustment if necessary, but the need for adjustments are pretty rare. The job is not that difficult but set aside a full day or two the first time you do it so you can take your time. You don't need any special tools except for the tool to do a vacuum fill of the cooling system, and that is about $100. There is a tutorial on the site, check out the technical FAQ section.

Give it a few thousand more miles. The top end will spew chunks. After it's rebuilt you won't have to worry about them for another 36k or so! :dance: :banghead: :D

If you're mechanically inclined it's not too hard. But yes you will need a vacuum tool to suck out coolant. Just one more reason I love my GSA. ;)
