    coolant leak

    I have had my s3 in the garage having some work done ( water pump and timing belt) on the report it says there was coolant leaking from around the head gasket and may require further attention. He has cleaned it all up and rad sealed it. He took it out for a 10 mile drive got back and its bone dry now, But will this mean the cylinder head is on its way out ? Or should I not panic ?

    Thanks

    Keep an eye on your coolant level. Don't panic. If it starts drop it take it to a garage and get looked at.
