First thing I would suggest doing is using a hydrometer. This is a cheap gizmo that test quality of anifreeze. Make sure it is the correct antifreeze and the quality is good. Also, Use 10w30 oil and not 5w30. 5w30 is for the winter.
Also buy syntheic oil will help. It has a multi-viscosity instead of single. This means the oil will adjust to the temperature.
A coolant flush would also be a good idea. Usually reommended for 4 year maintenance intervals.
How are your coolant hoses? Are the spongy or hard? If so have them replaced.
Thermosat is obviously good.

First and foremost, you need to find the short that is blowing that fuse and not attempt to start it any more until it is found. You'll need to use a tool called a fault finder to trace the short back to its origin. Repair that short and then see if the other problems come back.

There is a cluncking noise in the front end when moving the steering wheel front wheel drive

If you are only hearing this clunking sound when you are turning then you need to have your cv axles replaced. Also known as half-axles. In a truck, these are known as the universal joints. You can take your vehicle to the local tire/front end clinic and they will tell you whether or not, it is worth the fix.

2008 vette coupe experiences a humming/vibration type sound coming from passenger side console, it seems to activate at higher speeds after driving for awhile. Are there there any motor or hydraulic types...

I have the exact same problem on my 08 starts at about 65mph and is really bad above 80 goes away at 95 or so. I have determined that it is not a motor. I think it is a wire that is vibrating against the dash pad. I am going to take my center console out and lay the radio and climate controls to the side and drive the car to see which wire it is. I tried removing the console and securing all the visible wires last night. but the problem is still there so I may have missed it. Driving and seeing behind that area and looking for the culprit is the only sure fire way for me to positivley Id it. I will let you know what I find out. you please do the same.

Coolant sensor may be the problem. It is located near the thermostat housing. It may be sticking between modes & not operating properly.Also make sure coolant is circulating in system.
