Most likely it's a slow leak from the water pump. Water pumps are made to leak when they start to fail. If there's no obvious coolant leak from the radiator or any hoses, then it's probably the water pump. If you can find the pump, you will probably see some light colored crusty buildup around the seal or pulley shaft. When coolant leaks out, it's very hot so it dries quickly on contact. The net-effect is that you lose coolant slowly.

You likely have leaking head gaskets.

Heater blows out cold air


If coolant is low, the heater will blow cool.. if coolant is low..if cant see a leak..need to have radiator pressure tested..or top off coolant and keep a close check and see how much your losing,that is what I would check first, if not low then I would check heater core as suggested
