Quick question, my 2007 Santa Fe with 3.3 has developed a small coolant leak. Every so often, I see a few drops on the garage floor and every 6 months or so I need to fill the reservoir with new coolant.
So I took it in last Friday at a Hyundai dealership and he said that I need a new head gasket. So my question is, is that correct?
I did a search and most says that if you need a new head gasket, coolant would have leaked into the engine and oil. When I changed the oil back in June, I don’t recall seeing any foam or or any indication that something is wrong with the oil. Even yesterday, I open up the oil cap and pull the dipstick, every looks normal.
I assumed that not all head gasket problems leads to coolant in the oil?
I didn’t get a chance to ask the dealer because it was late and I have to bring to car back because they don’t have the gasket there at the moment.
