Mileage and maint hist? Does manufacturer have any recall/warranty ext. on this issue? Honda has something that sounds similar--weak spots in engine block may allow coolant leaks. In their case it's a warranty ext. NOT recall. Repair based on customer bringing in vehicle for inspection to verify. Good luck.
