Losing Coolant
My 2011 WK2 with the Hemi has been steadily loosing coolant. I had the water pump replaced at 41k. It currently has 49k.

The overflow was empty approximately 1k ago when I had my mishap with the washer fluid in that reservoir that many of you may have read about. I drained the washer fluid out then and filled it up to full with 50/50 mopar coolant and water. It is at the add mark again in just over two weeks.

There are no obvious leaks anywhere, cannot smell coolant in the engine bay or around the radiator. The exhaust contains a ton of white smoke when first started warm. It does not smell badly of coolant but does not smell like normal exhaust either. The oil for both the engine and transmission is clean and not contaminated with coolant.

Does anybody else think this may be head gasket related?

Re: Losing Coolant
The only thing I would suggest is keeping an eye on the water pump weep hole. It sounds like a few of us are on our 2nd and 3rd water pump. If it was a head gasket issue wouldn't you see some oil in the coolant or visa versa?

Re: Losing Coolant
since you had it replaced not too long again and you did just disconnect and drain the container, it could just have had air in the system that is working its way out of the system. just add again and keep an eye on it.
