The car looses water and I am not sure where the water goes. Can you please tell me the possible reason(s) for this problem that I am experiencing?
Furthermore, are there any possible methods in which I could use to check what the problem is. I have also been to a mechanic and I have been told that the water loss might be due to the head gasket, but the mechanic is not sure of this.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello,

A few causes of Coolant Loss - Loose or bad Radiator Cap, Leaking Hose/s, Leaking Heater Core, Leaking Head Gasket or water pump.

This guide can help su fix it

So, Now while inside the vehicle do you smell a sweet scent? Is the floor board on either the front Passenger or Drivers side wet or damp? If so then most likely the heater core is leaking and needs to be replaced.

Do you see any wet areas under the vehicle? If so were(e.i passenger side toward front of vehicle or by tire)?
