My car has been leaking coolant for the past 4 days. It has not over heated but it tells me i need to keep adding coolant.I need to know where it is leaking from but its not quite showing exactly where...Is it the radiator or hose? Or could it be something else?

    A visual inspection will determine this, but my guess is the radiator is leaking. You have to remove the shield under the radiator to see the bottom of the radiator, look at the ends of the radiator tank and you'll see coolant if it's leaking.

    I am having the same problem and I was told that it is the head gasket that is the culprit.
