claybar is on a distinguished road

I have had the same issue. I will go for a month and then I'll get cold air out of the heater and realize that the coolant level is down about a gallon. This has happened twice for the last two months. This is just after I had the radiator and the heater core replaced because they were getting plugged up. My mechanic did a pressure test on the system and said it lost very little pressure during the test....very minimal. The oil didn't look foamy or cloudy but I'm going to let it sit over night and look at it again. Possible pin hole in the head gasket???? The truck runs misses or backfire. Please let me know if you find out your problem. I have a 03' 4.7 that I love but don't understand.......sounds like an ex-wife I had.
