    Lime Creek road is really a residential road now. Dozens of homes have gone up over the past 3 years since the building restrictions were lifted.
    I agree, once upon a time it was even sane to ride a bicycle out there, I used to , wouldn't now....Way too many new driveways and new homes since I moved away. I noticed the squids still meet at the 7-11 parking lot on 620...drove by the other day on way home in the truck.

    Any updates or comments about using this tool? I'm getting ready to order one.

    Got mine but have not used it yet - expect later in the year, even if just to flush the coolant.

    I am a Matco Tools guy and I can tell you that there are a few coolant system refilling tools. They all work about the same (same principle) and range in price from around $100 to around $200. Most techs who start using one of these tools find them 1/ big time savers, 2/ easy to use without help and 3/ well worth the money. I've heard comments like "I don't know what took me so long to buy one" and "I can't remember what I did before I started using this tool". All the mobile tools guys carry this product by Uview or a similar one.
