Do you ever notice coolant dripping when it's parked? If no, then it could be bad news in the form of a leaking head gasket.

dito.... keep an eye on where ya park..... look for some green trailer... could be anywhere.... could be cracked overflow tank, split overflow hose, or just a little leak in the radiator..... or acrack in the heater core or its hoses....

id say just for safety id get some radiator stop leak and pour that into the system... and hopefully if its small enough it could stop it....
just a posibility... if that doesnt ya gotta keep tracken it down.....

if coolant is missing and you cant find it you need to check your oil.

Over heating
missing coolant

those 2 in tandem sound like a dead ringer for a blown head gasket.

Or it could be a bad water pump?
