There aren't many of us here that take as great care of their cars than Don. I'd be willing to bet you he checks his fluids weekly in both Bonnevilles. That seems to be the key to successful Dexcool use. Vigilance.

You can use a sealant. Use GM sealant tabs (cooling system suppliment). Get them at the dealer or use product "HDC" (same as dealer product) or the powdered version "G12BP" in the following link.
