If you don't have a visible leak, you may have a head gasket issue. If engine compression gets into the cooling system it can blow water out the overflow. Take the radiator cap off when the engine is cool and start it. Let the engine warm up and watch for bubbles in the coolant.

If you have the work done it will be fairly expensive, possibly up to $2,000 but it should be less. Just get a few quotes from reputable shops. The cost will also depend on whether your heads are warped or need rebuilding.
