What could be wrong if you are losing coolant from the recovery tank of a 1998 Chevy Tracker 16l 16 valve engine when the head gasket was replaced there is no wetness anywhere and no vapor from the tailpipe?

Not to insult anyones intelligence or pose a stupid question but I have in the past forgotten to fully fill the radiator with coolant after doing a job. As in your question the Head Gasket was replaced ( I assume recently) well in doing so the cooling system was probably flushed and possibly not fully filled.

If this is the case then it would suck up what is in the tank until it is completely filled to a level that is sufficient. Now if you are filling the reservoir on a daily basis and it is "disappearing" then you truly do have a mystery and I am stumped.

I hope this might have helped a bit.

Nope. Body style changed significantly in 1998 when Chevy replaced Geo on the Tracker nameplate. Sorry!
