I have a '99 acura rl with 170,000 miles. I had the radiator replaced about a year ago but every so often it ends up being low on fluid.I notice it by the heat gauge flying up then down. Turn off the car and it is fine, sometimes, but when it does this the heat doesnt work. I do not see ANY leaks although I get that smell every rare once in a while. A mechanic just scared me by saying the car could be burning/using it and I would have to replace the engine because at that mileage replacing a head gasket or such is not worth it. Again, no leaks evident anywhere. And it takes three or four months to get low? Very strange. Is my engine shot becuase of coolant? It runs phenomenal. Thanks
have the same problem?
