After yesterday’s ridiculous 38 degrees (highest temperature I saw on the gauge in the van), today was a markedly cooler 25 degrees. Still very hot, but the occasional spots of rain helped it feel better. Even at half past five it was still 36 degrees out.
After a few days of the jag off the road we’ve found the source of it’s problems too. The radiator expansion tank is made of shit and has split right where a top hose goes in. I suppose it’s good we’ve found it before it emptied the engine and killed it.
I’ve ordered a new water bottle and it’ll be here Wednesday.
