Im loosin coolant, not at an alarming rate, just little bit here and there. There is a small ticking noise coming from under the valve covers, but that has been there since Ive had the car. Its not very loud at all, kinda like a pin head on a tile. I took some pictures of the oil color and tried for an inside picture of the valve covers since I dont have the time to remove the covers themselves. Im thinking of droppin the car off monday to have the gaskets replaced...any other ideas
Sorry for the finger. lol

Just makin sure cause somewhere in the line I am loosing coolant a bit. But then again can that be an affect of the Dexcool and not regular stuff? And by switching this early in the cars lifespan, will I really need the new gaskets or will the green stuff kinda revitalize it so I wont need it since its not broken down
Also just thinkin about it. It looked like sludge near the injectors on the rear bank side and clean on the front side. But it looked oil orangish color.
With your car being pretty new, it'* doubtful the Dexcool has turned acidic. However I would suggest changing the LIM gaskets to the new style aluminum frame ones that were recently released. Then flush well and fill with Prestone Dex compatible long life coolant.
