    Engine ever misfire then clear up on it's own, like after sitting overnight? See any white smoke/steam from tail pipe?

    I did see white smoke one time for a split second. The engine was not misfiring but it is strange that we have to keep putting coolant in, where does it go.

    Suggest a combustion leak test for possible head gasket problem. Most any auto repair shop should be able to do it...
