I am losing coolant, but the car does not test positive for exhaust in the radiator. I am nervous to use the product, but sure I have head gasket leak

The coolant may be being pulled into the combustion chamber so no combuston gas in the radiator, use a tube of "AlumAseal" radiator sealant and head gasket sealer it is safe and will not clog up the works, it works.

Radiator Sealant will it cause problems down the road

It probably won't get any worse than it is now. Sealer is supposed to plug leaks when it comes in contact with air. Otherwise it stays suspended in the coolant.
You may want to do another flush in 6 months and then just keep an eye on it. Make sure the radiator and overflow tank are both full of liquid coolant.

Coolnt is coming inside the car i had a the heater core and radiator flsh but was still getting smell and smoke coming from the vents what can i use to stop the leak because right now i am on a fixed...

Try a radiator sealant or stop leak. Aluma seal works well but any brand available at an auto parts store should be sufficient. Make sure you follow the directions exactly. This has about a 50% chance of working and will likely only be temporary. You can try again if the first time was unsuccessful but use no more than 2 bottles total as you may clog the radiator.

Radiator is leaking from the top piece. Looks like between the seam of the top piece and the base section, where the two meet. They look to be held by small clamps. It's a slow leak. Is it worth using...

The sealants don't really work and you don't want a problem out on the road. You can take it to a radiator shop or buy a new/ rebuilt one and do it yourself.

Flat tyre

If you have the "Mini Mobility System" your car has a tube of tyre sealant and an electric air pump. These are locate in the boot (trunk) under the carpet.

Shake the tube of sealant. Screw the filler hose onto the bottle. Unscrew the dust cap from the tyre valve. Unscrew the valve insert from the tyre valve using the screw device (very important). Push the tube of tube of sealant onto the tyre valve and hold the bottle with the cap pointing downwards. Squeeze the bottle and force the entire contents into the tyre. Replace the tyre valve insert using the screw tool (most important).

Get the electric pump and connect the hose with the pressure guage onto the tyre valve. Connect the pump electric plug into the cigarette socket in the car or power outlet in the boot (ignition key needs to be on position 1). Inflate the tyre to 1.8 - 2.5 bar. Switch the pump off for a moment to check the pressure accurately. Unscrew the compressor, and put everything away in the boot. IMMEDIATELY drive your car for about 10 minutes. This is to distribute the sealant throughout the tyre. Do not exceed 60km/h. After driving for 10 minutes, recheck the tyre pressures using the pump or at a service station. Continue your journey but keep below 80km/h until you have the tyre checked or replaced.

2001 Oldsmobile Aurora "Check coolant light" comes on. I refill the coolant and then a few months later the same thing happens. What is the source of this slow leak?Any estimates of cost to repair?

try to get a bottle of transmission sealant first, or sometimes called stop leak. add that, see how it goes for a while. if happens again, then look at hoses and connections, if still happens maybe radiator or a puncture some where
