Which doesn't seem to be an actual fix at all though since it claims to only affect things after the engine has already lost too much coolant and has overheated. How is shutting a few valves after the coolant has escaped going to prevent the car from self immolating? Has anyone gotten a better explanation of this?

The actual service bulletin says that they were also to inspect the car thoroughly for coolant and oil leaks, as well as to pressurize the cooling system to proof test that it wasn't currently an issue on the car.
