gauge the radiator cap and the water pump. every
day I have to add more coolant it becomes bone

If you can't visually find where coolant is leaking from, you may need a pressure test for the cooling system (something obscure like a freeze plug on the engine block may be leaking). You might also be losing coolant out the exhaust, if you have a blown head gasket, a compression test may reveal if that's the case.
