No puddle under the truck this morning.
Yea, I guess so, assuming it didn't manage to all boil away. Very odd scenario for sure.

Pulled into the next station, open the hood, and wet everywhere, and not a drop in the radiator or overflow. Filled it up, started it, no obvious leak. Never once saw fluid on the ground or anything every time I stopped. Drove the last 200 miles no problem.

Very strange. So now I have to figure out this mystery.
Last time that happened to me it was a failed headgasket. Nothing in the oil even, just disappearing coolant. Hope it's a simple fix for you!

I'm having a baby. I now have three cars that aren't ideal for a child. So I'm back to figure out if I should I sell the 2001 4runner or 2013 BRZ?



I'm sure this unbiased platform will steer me the right way.

How is the 4Runner not appropriate for a child? Is it missing the floorboard or something?

You were very close! An outlet in the radiator not used and capped off. Look at that poor little cap. Thankfully, cheap fix.

It's my dunes runner and offroader. Therefore, it's all banged up, squeaky, not the safest, etc. Not that it can't carry a kid, but in theory so could the BRZ! I'm looking at something like an Avalon for the wife instead.

I did it with my two youngest in a 911. Granted, we also had an Isuzu Rodeo, and a 1969 Gladiator.

Your lady must be more easy going than mine! We have three vehicles, all of them were mine so now one of them is on the chopping block.

I admit, my wife is easy going, wants the best for me, puts up with my shit, and is super hot.

I try to never forget I am one lucky man.

what's the 3rd vehicle?

because the 4runner has toyota badges, and the brz has subaru badges, the 4runner is likely worth more...

BRZ is good for a little while. They're pretty decent all around except for normal sized back seat human fitting. But good fuel economy for just driving, plenty of space for hauling groceries... and good for weekend racing. Minivans are the best for kids though. Ha.
That said, keep what you'll get the most joy out of driving the most often.

PSA. Don't strip a ground strap bolt hole 3 days before your next autocross...

Edit. At 11pm

Second edit. It gets worse... Anyone want to guess what this is?
