    Get the code read. Can't really tell much without it.

    I too have one or more coolant leaks and the mechanics don't seem to agree about where they are exactly. I mean come on, is it possible that the thermostat housing, water pump and heater core leak all at once ? I'm losing about 1 litre of coolant a week.

    One liter a week! Wow! I'd check your oil to make sure you don't have a bad head gasket too.

    The oil is fine, it has the right color, texture, all is well. What I'm sure of until now is that the heater core or teh O rings are shot. I'm getting a lot of antifreeze smell in the car once the engine gets up to temperature and I also noticed that coolant is dripping from the little pipe thing from the firewall.

    Good times ahead...

    Leaks are the worst... good luck hunting it down for sure.
