    I have not heard of any XX’s...think I remember seeing an issue or 2 with the Yxz’s. I know the water pump impeller has been an issue for the hard core racers on the Xx. You have an issue? Like with any engine there always can be a issue with a head gasket for no apparent reason.

    Coolant goes missing from coolant tank and no signs of external leaks. Thinking it must be an internal problem?

    No temp issue or milked water? Has to be going somewhere if neither of those.

    Thats the strange thing oil is clean not milky and temp is constant with no overheating issues. Checked skid plate multiple times and haven't seen any indication of the tunnel coolant lines leaking.

    Wildcat xx head gasket issue

    You can do coolant pressure test and
    a leak down test.

    I have had to do the pressure test on my teryx and I was surprised that I found 2-3 leaks at various fittings and clamps.. Stant makes a good tester. FYI you make need to get an adapter to fit the radiator fill neck in order to use the tester.
