Poor heat on cool mornings drove me to flush and fill the radiator using typical off-the-shelf chemicals. During that effort I discovered that the overflow bottle had contacted the serpentine belt system and had a hole worn in it. This caused the car to lose enough fluid that the heating performance suffered. I took it out, patched it with fiberglass mesh and adhesive, reinstalled, finished the flush-and-fill, and thereby solved the problem. Flush-and-fill probably not necessary.

Rattling was due to corroded heat shield on catalytic converter. Said only lower shield was removed and replacement not necessary. But they took off top shield too, and my online research showed this shield is important for safety. Follow up to prior trip. Independent garage could not complete this when needed so I went to dealer. They lowered exhaust and installed new heat shield assembly for catalytic converter.

Clutch slave cylinder, already replaced by local garage, appears to have slow leak. Clutch fluid reservoir was empty and clutch pedal failed to operate clutch.

Also suspect some leakage from clutch master cylinder based on old (2+ years) stain on top of driver floor mat, on firewall. Slave cylnder replacement was over 4 years old, so arguably not shop's fault, but part did not last nearly as long as original.
