Has any one had problems of lickages from the engine cooling system? I've got a 2006 PT 1.6 liter (European version) with very low mileage and it started loosing coolant

Our 2001 has a minor coolant loss, about 1/2 liter per week. We have been unable to locate the leak. The car passes a hydrocarbon sniff test, and the radiator /cooling system holds pressure with no loss. We do not know where the coolant is going, but I am 'suspecting' a crack in the overflow reservoir, or the lines leading to it. We are just a few hundred miles from a timing belt change, so I am holding off, hoping the fault will be found in that work cycle.
