My car has recently started leaking massive amounts of coolant however it isnt leaking externally (there is nothing under my car). I have to add coolant everyday because the reservior gets completely dry. Than the light goes on and my car begins to overheat. I've had this problem before except that the coolant was leaking all over the driveway. I brought it to the mechanic but they found no leaks. They only replaced the coolant cap. Does this sound like something serious. I really cant afford another bill for this car!
Do you

If there are no visable signs of leaking, it must be burning in the motor. Are you seeing any white smoke out of the exhaust?

Could also look at the oil stick and transmission dipstick check both for signs of coolant on either which will definately be signs of a internal leak, and would suggest you do not run the vehicle if this is the case, as coolant gettin into the engine will damage the valves, pistons etc.
