My car is leaking antifreeze. Have to add some so bucket at least once a week. Car starts reading hot on gage when the bucket becomes empty. No signs that I can see where the fluid is going.

Do you
have the same problem?

Have it pressure tested to pin point the leak. Be carefull, overheating will damage the head gaskets and add 1500 to the repair cost
