Dear customer

Dear customer, is the coolant draining?

Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 16 days ago.

Dear customer first of all, if the problem started after changing the head gasket, it is most likely that some seal was poorly placed and water is escaping through this area, remember that there are several elements that can leak water, but given your case, I would recheck this element, however sometimes it may happen that there is an excess of water accumulated due to moisture, which could represent a failure in the catalytic converter, as water is a by-product during emission, however this failure is the least frequent, if you tell me more about the loss of coolant, overheating in the engine, a change in oil colour or other factors, perhaps we could evaluate other reasons, any information that you think can help to further deepen your query, will be well received.

I hope this info to be helpful, my goal is to give you the best advice i can, if you have any doubt or want to know anything else please do not hesitate to reply back.
