You probably have a blown head gasket and the coolant is getting past it into the cylinder and going out the exhaust. Check the exhaust for white, sweet smelling smoke, like the smell of anti-freeze, to see if it is obvious. The next step would be to pressure test the system. I am giving you a walk through diagnostic to help explain the situation further and if you want you can go through it and see if there is another possiblity.
