Aurora 3.5 L v6 coolant issue

Constantly topping up coolant and no visible leaks any reasons why?

Most of the 2.8,3.1,3.4,3.5 and 3.9 V6's had some lower intake gasket issues.

Seen some as earlier as 36K and some lasted 150K.

I also seem to remember a crossover pipe on the 3.5 that had leakage issues.

There are some square gaskets that go into the intake side of the engine that can leak. I had to change mine twice, try to get the OEM the aftermarket do not last. Not an easy job I chose to pay mechanic to do it.
Another issue could be the water pump is leaking slowly, mine needed to be changed at about 185K miles.
