Default loosing some coolant - hg issue?


I am loosing about .75 cm of coolant from my coolant resevoir every month. Should I be worried? Havent yet got the bandaid fix from the dealership. Ways on to check if im on my way to HG failure?

btw this is a list i stole from someone on
Ways to tell if your HG is gone
(car does NOT have to show any more than ONE of these):

1. You are loosing coolant somewhere and there are no visible leaks at the hoses.

2. You are loosing an excessive amount of oil and it is not leaking out on the ground (also a sign of bad rings and many other things).

3. Your car gets really hot (not neccessarily overheating) when run. (This was my first sign for those that remember... but it was because my coolant was low).

4. You have water [coolant] mixed in with your oil.

5. You have exhaust gases coming out of your cooling system (overflow bottle or radiator).

6. You have condensed coolant at your exhaust tip (mine had it... weird to see green back there).

Get the recall done. My car is leaking pretty bad from the driver side bank and dripping out from the pass. side.

I'm getting mine replaced as soon as my TWE cams come in the mail.
