If you don't know where the leak is use one of these, you can buy borrow or rent one. Test with engine cold. Meantime keep radiator full, but if it severely overheats all the time, don't drive it, you could blow a head gasket if you haven't already..hope not ..and do an OBD scan. Since CEL is on some fault has been detected and might help point you in right direction
