How fast is it losing coolant? Have the cooling system inspected ...and tested, from radiator to water pump, to T-stat...Don't guess at this its a major cause of ruined engines from over heating. Regards

Check to see if your radiator fans are working.

It isn't loosing any coolant that I can tell, I haven't had to add any and it isn't leaking anywhere under the car. I did check the radiator fans and they only come on when I turn on the air conditioning.
