OK, these were my previous posts for two other problems. I changed the the plugs and wires on Sunday, brand new ones, of course. The old one had huge gap but totally dry. But I didn't notice any coolant lost until yesterday though. I am too far away from the car now, I will check the version later.

I can't agree with you more, Bill. That'* why I am still tempted to drive it back home tonight. I won't come to work tomorrow because of a doctor appoitment.

Man, 6L. That'* more than the amount of oil in the car and more than 1/3 of gas I burned yesterday! If it'* an internal leak, it must come out from any of these places, oil, tranny fluid or exhaust. But I can't even smell coolant in the exhaust when the the car is idling.

Now it'* odd that I can't see any external leak either...Will find harder later!

The beauty of some leaks is they don't appear anywhere.. in those cases we say UIM and it'* certainly a possibility.
