Default coolant light keeps coming on

ok so i was told my head gasket might be on the way out the only thing is it was just done 50 000 kms ago right before i bought it by the toyota dealership
the problem im having is im losing coolant but i dont know from where because i dont have a puddle under my car i had a hose that was leaking but that was tightend up and my water pumb might be leaking but not enough to keep bringing my resivor light on ...i work in a shop so i have had the mechanic look at it but its hard to say what it is anyone have any ideas?

I just got done replacing my BHG. My temperature guage liked to spike a lot unless I kept the engine going at above 3000 RPM. We had done everything else, new water pump, new radiator, new fan configuration...nope. Dug into it and found the BHG and erosion on the head. Had to get the head planed, 10/1000 (which is not reccomended by Toyota) and put the thing back together. So far it has stopped the overheating and has stopped blowing the coolant out of the system, but now I have an injector (or something) leaking fuel and can't find where to plug the knock sensor back in so, hopefully I'll get that soon.

my supra did tat on me too. i thought it was the thermostat, switched tat, but still, it kept saying it over heats. then, after like 3 month, it wouldnt start anymore. took it to the shop and they diagnosed it wit a BHG and need all my cylinders replaced.

evosupra is an unknown quantity at this point
Default For you guys using an Autozone gasket !

DONT !
do not put a cheap $50 head gasket from felpro,,,
Get yourself a Titan or HKS, or cometic metal 2.0 mm gasket.
Pretty much guaranteed not to blow !
