I am not too sure mate, maybe some can help here. Last nite i did about 60km and it lost 1.5liters of coolant. Plus i had it on the pressure test and at 140kpa the were no visible leaks. At that stage i though the head gasket blew between a water chamber and cylinder, hence it was going out the exhaust. The is no water in oil, thank god!!
Mate thats not good news at all
I had the same problem on the xr re water loss.
Presure tested at 140 as well with no reduction of presure even over 2 hours!
Yet normal driving of an hour resulted in 2 litres of water loss.
At the end of the day, the head gaskets had developed several channels which alowed constant water loss under engine load, how it never made its way to a cyl I never know but once the heads came off you could clearly see the damaged that had started.
Please...Please dont drive her hard, in fact only fir the radiator cap to the 1st turn to allow presure to flow out through that just in case the heads or gaskets have shat themselves!
