Re: Low coolant
Interesting...I have 10 Malibu 4cyl. @60K, during my ownership, 3 years, I refilled the expansion tank twice, each refill was around 1/2 quart.
I change my own oil and really didn't see any discoloration on my oil too. The car runs and drives fine except that annoying downshifting issue.
I have an Ford Escape at 130K, I am experiencing the same thing on that car as well. Every summer, I am adding 1/2 quart of coolant
Any idea about coolant loss over 3 years?
