    Burbanzilla reached a landmark very few vehicles ever aspire to: the quarter million mile mark. unfortunately, the overheating problem has increased, power loss is now greater than power, gas mileage is down, and she's sliding faster.

    I think she has a blown head gasket. I've suspected it for some time ( water level drops in the radiator after a few days running) but I think its getting bad enough to warrant some serious overhaul work.* <sigh> just when blue skies were shining down on me.
