Found coolant around the radator and in the air intake box use the stuff you pour in the raditor to fix the head gasket. How long can I put off replacing the headgasket or the intake gasket, before i'm serious trouble. Another note engine temp doesn't overheat with the coolant tank empty, just wont get warm air.
