If you cant see where it is leaking from at the top of engine compartment it could be a bad bottom hose from the radiator to the engine.. Best way to find where the leak is - get engine warmed up real good.. Check for leak top and underneath wall it is running.. if you dont see it - shut off (the pressure will build some) and check again and you should see where leak is coming from.. Your description dose not indicate where its coming from..

Good luck ;)

Losing antifreeze but not on ground not in oil

Generally speaking, if there are no external leaks, odds are the engine is burning the coolant out the exhaust pipe due to a leaking intake or head gasket.

Losing there a water drain pipe that comes from the heating system

If you are not seeing a coolant leak on the ground, and you are adding coolant every week, chances are the engine is burning it out the tailpipe. That would be from a leaking head gasket or other internal problem with the engine.

I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu the overflow bucket keeps losing tha fluid and running hot but I don't see anything on the ground

could be leaking while your driving down the road. check the bottom of the hood and see if the cooling pump is spraying the coolant around(the coolant that comes Chevys is sometimes very corosive to the aluminum parts in your coolant system). should be a wet spot by were your belts are if the pump is leaking. try fushing your coolant.

Heat is good on acceleration but cold at idle

Check your coolant level, if ok, replace the thermostat.If you have been losing coolant for some time, and you are not leaving it on the ground, have a reputable garage check for an internal coolant leak using a block tester.

Losing coolant but not leaking

If you are absolutely certain that there isn't any external leaks then it has to be burning it. You may have a head gasket that is leaking slight enough that over time you notice a loss of coolant but it may not leak bad enough to notice it steaming out the tail pipe. Make sure that you do not have an intake manifold leak that just isn't hitting the ground. That is the first place I look for antifreeze leaks on GM engines(If thats all you been looking for is any fluid on the ground beneath where your car sits)

Losing coolant in Saturn 1998 SC2, water pump recently replaced, mechanics can't find the leak. Any suggestions?

if it is leaking from the lower hose on the radiator then chances are it is dripping onto the ground and they wont notice it. Tighten the clamp and see if that helps.
