Question about Toyota Camry
Look close on the top of the radiator they crack there. and the other thing you can do is put a piece of card board under the front and run the car and see where it leaks

have you had the undercarriage inspected for white stains from coolant, rust stains if your system is corroded? How many miles? has the water pump ever been replaced, that would be my guess, water pumps leak while the eng is running and the hot engine evaporates the coolant, so in many cases none on the ground. Also have the system pressure tested by a shop and put on a rack to check for signs of leaking under the car.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your answer. I have not changed the water pump since I bought the car 5 yrs ago. I will check that."
check the condition of the reserve tank and the hose from the reserve tank to the radiator for leaks if no leaks there have the Radiator cap presure tested . also this could be a air lock in the engine if the radiator is new with the engine running and the heater on hot observe the fluid level in the radiator with the cap off if it drops as it warms add more coolant this will purge the air .

Well, fortunately 250 is not extreme....So, no info on your year, so I will take a stab generically... Something happened. (duh), it could be it just got low on water, could be a leak...here are the next steps.
But first the upper rad hose may be a good clue: for a long time cooling systems had a recovery system...essentially, small amounts of coolant would be heated out, so this small amount of fluid was captured in a recovery system. This recovery system is outside of the pressurized cooling system....
Fluid goes into the recovery tank when hot, and this is normal. Then when the system COOLS, the radiator cap has a 2nd valve that alllows the coolant in the RECOVERY tank to be drawn back into the pressureized side.
The statement of the collapsed upper hose (replace it??) means this reverse system may be plugged or the cap is sticking...the function at this condition is that you would push heated fluid into the recovery tank and not get it back, so the next day you start the process short on fluid.....
So, look into that part, THEN fill with coolant to acheive the correct mix (if you put water you may want stronger % Coolant, when in doubt, drain it and start again with correct mix, it is important).
Heater on full at all fill and testing times. Pressure test the cooling system and look for leaks. Fix any that you find. Monitor the system...Thermostats need to be replaced routinely, in my opinion. Consider throwing on a rad cap and thermostat and have a good starting position to test and monitor the system.
Consider a flush of the cooling system...Easy at a lube shop and they recover the fluid.

Testimonial: "thank you...i did all that except replacing the thermostat and seems to run perfect...seems like my loose radiator cap started it all..i replaced it 2"
