I walked the thing back home, super scared it was something serious, and in the end it wasn’t.


Apparently some sort of plastic shroud under the radiator fan detached and got stuck to the exhaust headers. Even if the coolant was actually low for unrelated reasons, aparently it was just a thing of removing the plasticky crap from the headers and lettin er rip. Though given the shroud separated the hot headers from the cooler radiator, we might need to get a replacement one.
