I keep replacing coolent in my radiator but can not find a leak. Put dye in the water but nothing. Any ideas?
The plastic topped radiators are well known for leaking. Check inside the shroud and see if it is running down the passenger side of radiator, how does the underside of the water pump look? Check for whitish streaks there and on thermostat housing, most coolant leaks leave a snail trail of white streaks if they are temperamental leaks. If all is good there pop the oil cap and check for signs of water/oil mix.
A worn-out radiator cap can 'invisibly' lose coolant as well. The spring gets weak, allowing steam to escape to the overflow, where most of it evaporates before it can condense.
