Leaking Coolant Reservoir tank

I've been having an ongoing problem with what seems to be a leaking reservoir tank that holds the coolant for the radiator. Ever since I can remember I have had trouble keeping the tank full and have been refilling it with water in the meantime. I have checked the radiator itself and it seems to be fine and there seems to be no signs of where it may be leaking. I'm refilling it about every two weeks or so and cannot figure out why. any ideas?

Re: Leaking Coolant Reservoir tank

The entire cooling system must be inspected for crusty indication of of a coolant leak... also a failed head gasket could make coolant disappear.

Re: Leaking Coolant Reservoir tank

I have put a short hose on the overflow of the coolant reservoir, to prevent any liquid to go over the PCM connectors. Very strange setup indeed.
