The head gaskets are prone to fail if the engine overheats. When the temperature climbs above the normal operating temperature, turn the heater on the hottest setting, pull over, and shut the engine off to allow the engine to cool down.Google+

CHANGED THE RADIATOR AND NOTICE LOOSING ANTIFREEZE. FOUND BLOWN GASKET
Yet another very expensive repair that cost over $1600 to repair correctly. This car has many issues. Would not recommend it.
