Default water loss

Aluminum intake upper
throwing codes misfire cylinder 2
Pulled wires and checked for puddles of water in plug wells... nothing
(This happens a lot... Florida sucks)
get about 30 40 miles and radiator is low
thankfully work is 12 miles away

odometer broke at 150k... 5 years ago
heater hose busted temp gauge stuck on "not-hot" shut off as soon as i noticed overheating issue
nothing visible guess its vaporizing in cats
oil looks fine
thinking blown head gasket or intake gasket
might consider a PI upgrade ...almost had svo heads
1997 4.6 windsor NPI (as per VIN)
but ill know more for sure once I get into things

That's what I was thinking, but got confused by "but ill know more for sure once I get into things". Sounded more like a progress report than anything else at that point.
