Hello, I'm Brandon.

The engine is burning up the coolant due to a damaged cylinder head gasket.

Most likely there is line cracked between the cylinders gasket.

The fix could expensive and complicated about $1800 and up.

Please rate me positive, thank you. Let me know if you have further questions.
