I had a very similar problem with my 97 Honda Civic for more than two months. I had to fill the coolant up about every two weeks and I couldn't find a leak. It was really hard to start and eventually didn't turn on at all. Ended up being a perforated head gasket and water had filled into two of the cylinders. I highly recommend paying the little to get it looked at and catching the problem sooner so you don't end up paying thousands on a new motor, or new car (like me).

My Dodge Stratus 2005 is leaking coolant. No trace to be found. I discovered last week that the whole coolant reservoir was empty. Yet the car's temperature was at normal level. There are no trace

Look in the radiator in the morning when car is cold take off the cap if it is full then look at the reservoir and make sure you see to lines on it one you fill to when cols the other you fill to when how it will say hot and cold fill lines fill yo cold when it is cold then next day check and see when cold if it is at the same mark

2001 nissan sentra with QG18 engine. at cold start, it misses for about 10 seconds and then resolves.the MAF is new and plugs cleaned and injectors cleaned via fuel additive. cant imagine what it is

I would have the coolant checked for hydrocarbons. If there are hydrocarbons present you have a bad head gasket. The misfire at startup could be from coolant being in the cylinders. This would also explain the loss of coolant with no visible leaks and the inability for the cooling system to **** in coolant out of the recovery tank.

Collant isn't leaking out but it is evaporating or somehow i'm losing it and now no heat

No heat is the result of low/no coolant. Some places to look for the coolant leaks: Bad head gasket, cracked head, "pinholes" in one of the hoses, leakage around the clamps, and a hole in one of the side tanks on the radiator. If your windows are fogging upon startup or you have a sweet smell inside the cabin chances are the heater core is bad.

I have 1999 cadillac cls seville that won't keep coolant in it.

most likely you have a head gasket that is leaking. the coolant is leaking slowly into your cylinders, so thats whyh it has to be topped off so often, and thats what is causing the abnormal shaking and stumbling. the only way to be 100% sure of this though is to have a tech. do a compression test on your cylinders. it doesnt take very long, and its not very exxpensive. low compression or a leaking cylinder would indicate a bad head gasket. I would recommend doing this as soon as you have a chance. the problem will only get worse over the coming weeks, and when it decides to completely fail, it will leave you stranded.

Over heating. no heat from heater

You need to replace the Thermostat and gasket very quickly as you are damaging the engine when it overheats. Your thermostat is not opening at all preventing the coolant from reaching the engine, cooling it off and sending the now heated coolant into the heater core to keep you warm. The shaking may or may not go away once this is fixed.

Good Luck!
