Raider update

Between the sudden heat we’ve been getting, and being subjected to heavy traffic, the Raider has been running warmer, and going through coolant. There isn’t any coolant in the oil, no white exhaust, no puddles underneath, nothing else that would point to a head gasket issue or a leak. I’m not sure where it’s going, but in a day and a half of driving, I’ve added half a bottle of coolant, and just as much water. I should probably do a compression test to be really sure, but I really don’t think the head gasket is leaking. This is exactly what it was doing when my friend had it before me, just intermittently disappearing lots of coolant. Very weird, and doesn’t exactly inspire confidence for driving into the middle of nowhere.
