Forget the quick fix in a bottle. The M54 engine has an aluminum block which is prone to warping when oveheated. Give the second mechanic a shot at determing the cause of leakage. If it's the head gasket, you're covered. If it's a cracked head, just keep driving the car. Adding antifreeze is cheaper than adding oil! Too bad... This is why we recommend replacing the entire cooling system at 100K.
