Default Coolant

I have noticed I have been going thru a lot of coolant. Checked the oil doesn’t look milky, any other thing it could be?

Is there a puddle under the car? Any drips or wet spots in the engine bay?

I was going thru coolant also and never found any in the oil.. Turned out to be the LIM after all..

Was leaking out of that oval cover on the LIM and being evaporated/burnt up by the crossover pipe..

I had a coolant leak in my last Monte that was hard to locate, found out it was the plastic coolant elbows going from the tensioner to the block. After I changed those the leak went away but a year later I had the same issue. I pressure tested the radiator and had a big crack in the plastic on the drivers side. Seems everything plastic cracks sooner or later.
