Slight head gasget problem.

Hey all my head gasget is stuffed! It seems only a minor blow tho. Im loosing bout half an overflow tank every 10000 kms i think, maybe even less. Is there anything i can do other than changing it?

Sure its a headgasket?
A while back mine was losing coolant very slowly also, thought at first it was the head, but had a good look around and noticed it leaking from the water pump. Was only dripping like once a minute.

If it's that little, personally I'd leave it until it started to get worse, and then do it.
