MIA Coolant

Hey Everyone, my 2012 has begun losing coolant levels. Ive searched high and low and have found no leaks anywhere. Anyone else run into this problem?

No unusual smoke coming from the tailpipe, indicationg that the coolant is entering a cylinder (A.K.A. head gasket failure)?

Check around each hose connection carefully for any small leak; coolent returns to the overflow tank, as long as there are no leaks, as coolant will take the path of least resistance. Coolant will leak there, as well as air will be drawn from this leak, rather than the overflow tank.

I had a Ranger pickup that had a low radiator, and was adding to it once a week; the overflow tank was at the proper level, yet the radiator never drew from it. I finally located the leak; one of the automatic transmission lines that connect to the radiator was loose, and I could see the tiny mist of coolant spewing from it when I let the engine idle for several minutes.

Finding coolant collecting behind the harmonic balancer. The inside water pump pulley lip was wet.

I hear slushing or liquid going through the cooling system after the car sits a day or two.

I have the CPO 7 year / 100k power train warranty- ??

I'll follow up.
