Q: It seems once a year I start loosing coolant. The little light comes on the dash on 1997 Cadillac Catera

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I am wondering if the hose or hoses which are connected to the heater control valve (which is plastic) or any of those hoses around the heater control valve wear and does not have a good connection. The needle reads close to three quarters and then
the fan comes on. Started the 24th of Aug 2012, and now it is the 25th and I have had to add one gallon of 50/50, My brother will look at it but he needs a starting point (yes he has learned to work on the Catera, but he is slow because he has a family and job, but has two days off this next week.
Any ideas and what would shop hours be for that and parts hose and heater control valve if that is problem. Leaks center of car about 6 feet back from front of hood, please call 1-(256) 509-2455 (after 5PM PACIFIC TIME)
