Hello,I'm Brandon.

I am assuming there is a no coolant visually under the vehicle. Do you smell the coolant burning?

If not, then most likely the cylinder head gasket is cracked and the engine is burning the coolant through the exhaust.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Please rate me positive, thank you.
