Go to your local auto store and buy a block tester kit. It will run you about $30. Here's a short "how to" video. This will test for a bad head gasket. If it fails, you will at least know what the real issue is. Since you are going through so much and you don't have a puddle under the vehicle, I would suspect a bad head gasket. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YY2w2QvwAVo

Ok, I will try that thank you
