no leaks visible, sell coolant after driving,radiator was replaced a year ago

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I add every other day to resevoir. not overheating no visible leaks radiator was changed last year.

ok has the coolant system been pressure tested yet ?
the odds are if you see NO external leaks at all and it is NOT pushing out of the overflow any coolant this has to be an internal coolant leak of a possible head gasket

it has not been pressure tested

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Had head gasket replaced recently as it had degraded over time


ok the best action to take is to have the coolant system pressure tested to confirm NO external coolant leaks
if any shop up have them repaired and the problem should go away
if the test is dropping pressure on the tester and NO external leaks found there is more than likey a head gasket issue that the engine will need to come apart to repair im sorry to say Sue
dont get too down about it alot of times just because you cant see an external leak by eye doesnt mean it doesnt have an expernal leak
i have seen most of these be a small external leak causing this problem
