First thing to check is the radiator cap seal. If it is not sealing properly, the water will boil off and then soon, the anti freeze will begin to disappear. Clean the metal surfaces and gasket and make sure it is tight ---or buy a new cap --but make sure there is a seal. If that doesn't cure it, you may have a head gasket leak that blows the coolant (anti freeze) into one cylinder. If that cylinder is tight, the coolant will only evaporate in the heat and be blown out the exhaust --not entering the oil pan. Check your exhaust when you start up. You may see white smoke, or even liquid, exiting the exhaust pipe, indicating a blown head gasket (then engine may run rough, too). If this is the case, there are reasonably inexpensive cures for this in some cases.

You might need a lube job or you may need to see if noise is coming from another place such as your engine water pump, brakes, power steering. Look for leaks.

This problem could be a number of things. Let's start buy checking for light bulbs that are not going out when car is shut off, such as under hood lid, under trunk lid, inside of car that are hard to see, such as lights that usually stay on till you leave car but normally go of after a few seconds. You can tell buy waiting a while, they will be hot to touch. If this is so this is your problem.
Next check alternator, get an ohm meter, start car, set ohm meter to about 20 volts, and with car running put ohm meter cables red to positive of battery and black to negative of battery. This test should let you know if alternator is working and good if reading is between 13- 14.50 volts, if you do your alternator is good,if not alternator is problem.
Next check the battery with ohm meter. With ohm meter set the same way to 20 volts, and car off , put red lead to positive post and black lead to negative post . Your reading should be 12-12.50 volts. If reading is low 9-10 volts then the final test would be a load test. You may have to go to your mechanic, or a battery dealer for this one because not everyone has a load tester. This test will tell you if you need a new battery. They will know right away. Your problem could be a bad battery. All the above tests are for DIY. If you are not able to perform these tests yourself then go to a battery dealer they will do tests for you. GOOD LUCK.
