HELP! Losing A LOT of Coolant!
I have put about two gallons of coolant (50/50 mixture) within the last two or three weeks. So hear is the story.....I was going to the beach so I figured I would check everything. Well I had to add a whole gallon of coolant. I drove to the beach 5 hrs both ways and some more while i was down there. Got home and it was a little low. One day this week I put about 3/4 gallon of coolant in. Then I went on a trip pulling a twenty foot enclosed and my ECT's where around 207 normally, sometimes it went up to 214. The trip was about a 5 hour round trip. I add the rest of the gallon while I was gone, and now I'm back. Now it has no coolant in the resevoir. I have noticed that my ECT will rise pretty quickly, but I guess that could be from towing. It does look like it has been pucking some from around the cap. What could be wrong with this thing???? What can I do to find out whats wrong??? Is it failing head gaskets, something bad with the egr cooler, bad radiator cap?
Someone told me to have it pressure checked. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
