Coolant doesnt evaporate that fast. Most likely its time to replace some parts.

As for the oil, my car had that problem too, oil just disappeared. Someone suggested it was being burned up due to poor oil control rings on the pistons. I ran seafoam thru it several times, Crankcase and fueltank, and it hasn't re-occured. Put in about about 1/2 a can in with the oil about 500 miles before an oilchange, empty the rest of the can in with the gas.

Best wishes,
Tim

Drain your oil NOW if it'* not too late already. Your bottom end will rust out and trash the motor.
