Default Mystriously loosing coolant

Id have to say about every week I have to fill about from the bottom of the Coolant resivour. It isnt really a hassle or anything but annoying. I see just a small amount of moisture where my car in parked and dont see any on the radiator /resivour/tstat/hoses. What could it be?? I am stumped.

So you know it is leaking external and not internal then? Where abouts under the car is the moisture collecting? I found my Rad leak by traceing the leak from the ground up. I couldn't easily see the leak from under the hood before that.

Drivers side or passengers side? If it is passengers side it could be the water pump.

Yeah man, get a small mirror and a flash light and stick it down below your water pump and check it out there. They seem to be somewhat prone at higher mileages for the gasket to leak and water pump going bad.
