I must make that call to the dealer one day.

Service advisor, "Certainly, when would you like to bring it in?"
Me, "As soon as possible as its quite serious.".
Service advisor, "Certainly Sir what seems to be the problem?".
Me, "I think I have a cooling issue and the cooling level won't maintain full"
service Advisor, "Well that is quite serious. Can you tell me when this started."
Me, "Well I was driving at night and I heard a noise coming from the front of the vehicle. It stopped and I didn't hear it again so i drove home. When I got home I noticed the temperature was higher than normal. Like almost pointing to H instead of in the middle of the gauge as normal (pause, pause)".
Service Advisor, "Well that's certainly not normal however it could be a number of things so we need to get you in here so we can have a look at it"
Me, "Well make sure you have you best Tech available as I've been through this before and I don't want to have to keep bringing it back for the same issue. Make sure your Tech knows how to use a decision tree on the diagnosis computer. I'm not ignorant of mechanics and the complexity of modern vehicles. In fact I've done some Pre-diagnosis already.
Service Advisor: "Completely understand Sir. What have you found so far?"
Me, "Well I'm not sure if its the issue or even related but the next morning i noticed an obstruction in the area of the radiator cooling fins. As soon as I pulled the antler out, coolant came streaming out. Go figure"
