History
Gift from previous owner (family friend). Currently at 218k miles. Almost exclusively for short in town use by daughter to school and back (2 mi daily).
Previous owner received an engine oil test after the gift that showed coolant in the oil, likely a head gasket failure. Advised to keep the oil topped off, plan for a new oil change soon (2,000 miles), and run the oil test again.
Attempted a head gasket stop leak, Blue Devil brand. Unknown effect on coolant into oil yet (have not changed it or tested it yet). Engine developed an external coolant leak from somewhere under the timing belt cover down off of the oil pan.
Timing belt and water pump were changed 10k miles ago, unlikely to be water pump leak (doesn't not appear to be in the right place for water pump weep port, new water pump).
