I can assume from your description that it is not puddling on the garage floor
or leaking from one of the hoses that you can see.To narrow the leak down you are going to have to take the car in and have your cooling system pressure checked.By doing this the mechanic can better advise you on what needs to be done .To comment or make suggestions at this stage would simply be guessing. Good Luck

Most likely a frost plug, you may need a mirror to see it.
The head is not likely to just leak from the back, check for steam from the exhaust when hot.

Replacing leaking hose and refill with anti-freeze/coolant. What is the proper fluid amount and mixture?


The correct mixture/temperature scales are printed on the bottles of all good quality anti freezes. You can purchase a special hydrometer from a motor spares outlet that will give you the exact freezing point of you coolant, ti repeat, the mix depends on the minimum ambient temperature you expect to be driving in.

Antifreeze smell inside car no visible leaks in or out of the car


ANTI-FREEZE IS PROBABLY LEAKING A SMALL AMOUNT, IT MAY NOT BE ENOUGH TO GET ON THE FLOOR, OR IT MAY BE UNDER THE CARPET ALREADY. I THINK IT WILL BE VARY COSTLY TO REPAIR IF THE HEATER CORE IS LEAKING. I WOULD CONSIDER SOME FORM OF STOP LEAK. MUCH FASTER & CHEAPER

Losing anti-freeze cant find leak. dropping to same point every time.


Look at your overflow tank, these caps have a psi rating and if the seal gets old the cap won't hold the pressure and releases small amounts of antifreeze. Sometimes the overflow tank will be a powder looking in spots from the hot water leaking out.

Hate to tell you but it sounds like you have a blown upper or lower intake manifold gasket. This is a very common problem with these cars. I have had mine replaced twice in 150.000 miles. It has been recalled a couple of times 4 or 5 years ago. Its not a cheap fix it ran me about $800 to have them both replaced. If this is found to be the problem when your having it fixed have the garage working on it flush out the complete cooling system of the Dex-col type anti-freeze so it can be filled with regular anti-freeze when there done. Dex-col anti-freeze is the biggest reason these gaskets fail. It eats through and breaks down the gasket over time. But its best to have a garage flush out the system due to the fact the two types of anti-freeze cant be mixed at all or it will turn to a gummy substance and clog up and ruin water pumps , radiators, and heater cores but flushing the system good will keep from any small amount of Dex col being left in the system. In my opinion the regular anti freeze keeps the engine cooler and is twice as cheap not to mention that its gasket friendly

Keep loosing coolet no leaksfound


You only have a few options here:

Coolant either leaks out, evaporates, or is exhausted through the engine. Check your oil & see if you notice any coolant mixed in, indicating internal seal issues. Also, you can have a small amount of coolant drawn into the engine cylinder & exhausted as steam or vapor and never notice. If only a small amount and no noticeable engine problems, evaporation. Engine miss sometimes & refilling anti-freeze often is an internal leak, generally the Head Gasket. Very rarely, a transmission (automatic only) has been found with antifreeze in it due to a leak in the radiator/transmission cooling system. Good Luck.

Anti freeze loss


Check all radiator hoses and the radiator itself for small leaks. You could try an over the counter stop leak to see if that helps. On big leaks this is not recomended , but in small leaks it could svae your car from losing any more anti freeze.
