You might have a leaking hose that is just burning the coolant as it exits. How fast is the coolanbt loss? You might also have a blown head gasket in which case the coolant it mixing with the oil. Check the oil to see if it is milky. Also, check the coolant to see if there is any oil in it. Hope it isnt the latter, but you will be in for $$$ if it is.
