Help! My 99 Malibu (3.1 liter - 150k miles) is losing coolant. There are no apparent leaks and the temp guage is a little higher than normal, but not too much. I put coolant in last Sunday and my low coolant light came on again this morning.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

I would take a look at the Intake gaskets. Also look at the oil cap and make sure that it is not going inside the motor. If it is the oil cap will have nasty stuff on the bottom of it.

Cly is likely right on. The level is actually going down correct?

Thank you for the replys. Took it to the garage on Tuesday and it is the head gasket - told it would be about a $700 job - ouch!

Thank you again!
