Is it leaking near the front of the vehicle where the radiator is located or near the firewall by the heater core. Check the two lines on the passenger side going to and from the heater core. If the plastic reservoir stays filled, but the radiator runs low then there is a blockage in the rubber line running from the radiator to the reservoir. If the radiator goes down, then the reservoir should also go down as it replenishes the radiator.
