My last 200q all of a sudden started using about a pint of coolant every
150-200 miles. I never saw any evidence of a leak and was concerned about it
being a head gasket leaking into a cylinder. I tried some "Bars Leaks" and
the leak quit. Hate to use that stuff, but, there didnt seem to be much to
lose by giving it a try.

Along that same note, current 200q is leaking green gold - put some power
steering leak sealer in and that leak is about gone. The reservoir would get
to the bottom line in under a month - now it drops maybe 1/4 that much.

Granted, it's just a bandaid, but, like Bernie says...
