This is still in regards to my car leaking coolant. From your previous response. You said to check all the hoses and make sure everything is tight.I did that and I actually found the source to the leak. But i'm just not sure if its it or not. As far as I see. Its leaking from the intake manifold. So i'm thinking its the gasket.I have a Hondata intake manifold gasket and its showing some cracks on the outer parts of the gasket. Could that be the cause? I know coolant flows throw a hole in the intake manifold also. If I change the gasket to a regular gasket. Do you think it will fix the problem? Thankfully. The engine does not overheat or anything like that. Its temp is normal as it should be. All it does is leak and I have to fill up the radiator every 3 days or so. Thanks

Hi japostol78,

If the leakage is due to the gasket, which I believe is the cause based on your description, replacing it would solve the problem.

After removal of gasket, make sure the area is clean before reinstallation.

You should be able to visually see if the gasket is the only thing causing the leakage by the stain marks it will leave behind.
