Default Coolant level in plastic reservoir down a bit

Do healthy Bonne ever need to have coolant added?

I've been driving my Bonne for 15 months and I just noticed she was down a quart never did add fluid before.

check the outside of the engine to have leaks and also check your oil to make sure it doesn't look like chocolate milk. also, check the exhaust to see if it has white smoke. if either of these symptoms are occuring, then you may have an intake manifold leak or a head gasket leak. both are bad for your engine but if caught early can be fixed

That pretty much covers it. Look for any puddling around the LIM and heads.
