    Something very similar was happening to me. Just driving last summer when my low coolant light came on. Could not figure out why until I had it confirmed I had a bad water pump leak. Simple fix was to replace the water pump (cost me 35$ for the part). But watch out, the coolant that was leaking started to mess up the serpentine belt and I had to get that replaced as well otherwise it completely destroy it.

    Coolant is leaking out of the water pump and engine is overheating. Engine has been using 1 qt of oil for every three fill -ups.
