Is your anti-freeze running low?

Could be burning it.

Check the hoses on the engine

x2 on checking all the hose clamps. Its been a somewhat common problem that the hose clamps are not tightened up fully. They leak just enough to have the levels go down and evaporate due to the heat, so you don't see any puddles on the ground.
