It's worth considering although it's been about a year since I flushed the system. I'm definitely going to keep a watch on it. Thanks for the feedback.

Test the pressure cap. Make sure the overflow tank is not leaking. Fill the header tank to the top and the overflow tank to the full cold line when cold. Repeat several times. Pressurize and bleed any air. If you are still losing coolant you have a leak.

Header tank and cap are brand new. No leaks in the overflow tank.

Does your new cap have the larger rubber seal inside the top? You need that...
