[DML] Re: Coolant Coming Out



Could be:
1. A bad seal and the coolant is seeping into the engine. Check the 
look/quality of your oil. Possible, but not likely.
2. A slow leak when hot. Rubber expands and softens when hot. You 
won't detect a pinhole cracks/leak when cold and contracted. In the 
past I have used an ultra-violet additive, and found leaks with the 
help of a blacklight after bringing the car to running temp and 
checking.
3. Are you bleeding the system after each refill? If not, you may be 
overheating and loosing it daily. Do you smell any vaporized coolant?
