There are more things involved than just the coolant. The cheapest fix is a new thermostat. If the car is loosing coolant and it is not running out under the car, it could be a gasket and the coolant is going into the engine....check the oil dip stick for foam and or a high over fill reading. You could also have a plugged radiator.
