(I will give you what would be most common in the U.S.A. reasons)
1) A leak somewhere that can be seen with a really good strong light, and probably a frame hoist so you get under the car.
Since the coolant is colored, you should be able to see or taste the leak.
Since the coolant is poison, you will need the tiniest droplet to taste for it.
The engine might need to be running to pressurize the cooling system for the leak to show up.
2) An internal leak in the engine, traceable by white smoke out the tailpipe.
3) A malfunctioning cooling fan or radiator cap.
God bless your efforts.

Coolant leak in VW Golf mark 5 1.9 TDi auto DSG


There is, however, an air outlet into the driver's foot area. If the heater core is leaking, the air coming through the heater core will carry the droplets into the entire air ducting system. The driver's foot area may be the closest outlet. If it smells like coolant, you need to replace the heater core regardless of where in the cabin the coolant is coming out.

Over heating and loss of coolant


Need to check your radiator flow, and thermostat, start the engine cold, with radiator cap off, watch for the water in the radiator, when it starts to bubble over let it, keep water hose close, radiator should blow back till the thermostat opens, the water will go down, and add more water if needed, and put the cap back on,,,, if your thermostat is stick closed it will cause over heating......and you may have to have it replaced.
