    Antifreeze liquid level

    Hello.
    I have a problem with the antifreeze.
    It turns out that my car never in 3 years he has consumed me and 1 mm of coolant.
    The thing is that for a short time I see that something goes wrong level
    I thought of a leak and it did, I bend and saw a fat hose clamp down radiator something loose, tighten and seemed to lose the least level off but continues to fall.
    The car continues down the level and leaves a puddle around the wheel of the rider.
    If I bend I can see that falling droplets of one of the beams of the chassis but not to be hollow if it's there or runs up there.
    The thing is, I parked on an upward slope and any leaks just dripping down.
    I also found the driver's floor wet, and I thought I was inside the radiator, but it is to clean the entire area let dry and did not leave wet.
    The thing is that the park becomes a wet sloping area drained soil and as not whence.
    The car is perfect no traces of oil in the radiator expansion boat or traces of coolant in the oil not jerk, well etc etc etc starts.
    Anyone can give me an idea?
    Does anyone know how to access the interior of the radiator?

    The translator has scrambled your question!!

    Its impossible to know where your leak is coming from, you will need to follow the coolant flow back to the leak.

    Sure but I lose track.
    As I mention goes by beams underneath the car with hollow not whence.
    Could it be the stopper of the pot of expansion of the radiator? Already long tube problems with another stopper.

    Its a common fault for the expansion bottle to crack and leak so have a good look at all the hose connections.

    The boat was bought new, but I forgot to buy the plug.
    I let the cuffs and I squeeze back correctly.
    That's why I commented "if it can be the stopper?

    Yes they are designed to leak on high pressure but may become weak and leak at normal pressure.
