coolant loss?

I have a 09 sport, and I'm loosing 6oz of coolant every 5 hrs. It's not leaking out anywhere, I park it in my garage, so i would see it on the floor, but today when I came back after a short run it was like steam coming from the engine? It's still under warranty, so I guess I should go to the dealer, or where should I start looking? Also I haven't heard the fan come on, it's only 20* out and the runs are only 3 miles or so, but wouldn't it come on even in the cold.

It should come on, no leak and losing coolant sounds like head gasket to me

Thanks, got your windshield last week, and installed it, very easy after watching your video. Super product, and really made it a difference in the cold weather. I looked at some others, but the angle aluminum braces, and the superb scratch resistance sold me. Thanks for a great product.

Take the skid plate off where you would change the oil filter and check the coolant hose clamps in that area. There have been reports that sometimes they don't get tightened all the way. It ends up being such a slow leak that it doesn't make its way down through the skid plate.

I had the same problem with losing coolant out at Glamis. I was losing coolant so slow the sand was soaking it up. I got underneath the Rex to find the coolant hose leaking right by the oil filter.

Yup. That's where I found my leak. On the drivers side.

Mine started leaking at the radiator side of the hose this weekend at Brimstone. I have 27 hours on mine. It took 1 1/2 turns to tighten it down. Check that one too!!! I will have to check the other end that you guys mentioned.
