Voiture, thanks for the feedback. A couple of builders/wrenches have also suggested that scenario along with rapping on the rocker to perhaps loosen up some carbon build-up. What were your symptoms when you did the guide?

Spuggy, on a few occasions last summer it got as hot as a needle width above the 2/3 line (I forget what the little numbers say on the way outside and they are in C on this Euro car). I rarely drive in any traffic, but we have some fun, long, windy, 1st, 2nd, 3rd gear uphills here in Utah and that is where I would see the temps. This is a stock, fun, weekend car that gets me out of the house and in the garage; I like tinkering but I would like to avoid the slippery slope, for now at least.

Speedy, it was not running poorly, quite the opposite in fact. We are going to take another look at things this weekend and come up with a plan.

I really appreciate everyone's input and advice!
