Coolant

Engine

Vehicle Information: Year: 1998; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.5; Total Mileage: 32,800; Transmission: Manual;

I am losing coolant at a pretty good rate. Generally, 50 miles before the low level light starts flashing. Last fall, I started to notice condensation on the trunk lid and was able to smell coolant fluid after each drive. I tried a new coolant cap and that did nothing. Am I looking at a new engine?An independent shop said that it was probably a sunken cylinder or head gasket. If this is the case, can the engine be repaired or should I just look at a replacement?
