1. It sounds like you have a crack in your engine. On way to check is to see if your coolant reservoir has oil mixed with it. When oil and antifreeze mix it forms a brownish coffee looking residue. You would see this in the coolant or around the edges. Also, if you check your oil dip stick it might be there also. This will tell you that your oil and antifreeze are mixing together somewhere. 2. You could have a crack where your piston are. That means you're burning antifreeze while you driving. One thing for sure. The faster you're loosing antifreeze. The bigger the problem is. Get it checked out immediately.
