Thank you for your answer, Yes the Corsa/Chevy its a manual 5 speed,
kinda tiny car, I already replaced the missing coolant (Less than one
quart) and will keep an eye on it, already checked the plugs and all
of them look the same, the coolant deposit has a valve, my bet is that
valve, I also checked the interior for stains or coolant odor and
there is not any of these.
I remember that when almost brand new i took it to a warranty repair
on a camshaft cover gasket... I wonder if they moved some clamp on a
hose or like that. I will check that this next weekend.
will post the findings
