Well, I know I have asked a similar question before, but I think this deserves its own topic. Well I was informed by my mechanic that I have a leaking seal in my radiator. It doesn't always seem to leak though, and I have no noticed any coolant in my engine oil filler cap or my dipstick. Do you think there would be a way that my head gasket is cracked? By the way, the leak is coming from right under the bumper

You need to pressure test the cooling system to determine where the leak is. If you don't have a head gasket problem yet, you will have soon if you continue to let it overheat.

I completely understand that too. The leak isnt that bad though. And I am keeping it topped off everyday until I can get the money to get a new rad. The car has never overheated.
