Sorry to ask, maybe a silly question, but why do you think it has something to do with the HG's? The last time I replaced the oil, I haven't spotted any coolant in it. The coolant itself is very clear as well, nice green color without any whitish/oily substance. The fluid around the radiator cap is rusty but as it is very local I guess this is due to the cap itself.

So is it more likely the radiator is leaking instead of the HG's? Sorry for all the difficult questions... it's my first car and recognizing symptoms is quite new to me.
