im going insane please help me !!!

ok this is low coolant warning part 250

ok so my situation is my car cant hold the coolant for around 6month to a year and then it will leak ..it been like that for the last 5 year ... they were changing tthe water pump and then 8-12 month later boom, radiator, another 10month boom, water pump ... add another 10month and then the expansion tank etc etc etc

lastt winter i thought the problem was finally resolve... the garage find out that the atf was clog due of too much k seal...

and now 8 month later guess what.. boom again... so now i suspect that there is some k seal still leftt in the system or another part being clog... is a coolant flush gonna work ??? or im pretty much screw ?? and have to take apart every single piece of the coolalnt system and check one by one

Your problem is that you or someone else tried a cheap fix with the leak seal. Better to have fixed the leak the right way instead of resorting to leak seal that will just cause more problems down the road.

If you plan on driving it for a while, do a complete cooling system overhaul.

Yeah this is the best advice just do a complete cooling system overhaul. Get all the crud and crap out from the system and get it flowing right again.

Another K seal overheating problem. Fix it right or fix it twice. Looks like people throw in K seal to fix a head gasket problem. Most likely you still have a head gasket problem.
