Default Coolant Inquiry ?

2003 Ford Ranger, 93k, losing coolant in the reservoir every few days…… check the reservoir for cracks found none. No visible coolant on top of the engine area, no bubbling in the coolant reservoir when the engine running. What I am finding are coolant drops on the ground (right had side) the next day after driving the vehicle the previous day. No visible leak right away after driving the vehicle…….. Any information would be helpful. Thanks

Check the heater core hose that’s connected on top of the water pump

Check for leak around the timing cover. Mine leaked mostly just after shutting down a hot engine.

The truck was sitting for a few days in hot, humid, weather. Found a couple spots of coolant on the ground. Open the hood and inspected the top heater hose T connector and found the leak. A fine crack right at the T. A $3.00 to $4.00 part hope it does the trick. Going to replace the part and clean the engine. Thanks to all for your input.
