Question about Cars & Trucks
(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.
