So about 5 months ago, my stock radiator cracked on the top plastic piece on my 05 forester xt. We replaced it with an all aluminum radiator. Then it over heated because the bottom hose was leaking.. so we replaced that. We also replaced the thermostat and the radiator cap. So after all that, it seemed to be driving fine. Then we started to noticed that it was losing water and over heating about 3 weeks ago. But we can't see where its leaking and there's no evidence of water on the ground.

What else could be wrong!!?? Could it be a blown head gasket??!!

HELP ME!!!

Probably head gasket leakage. Make sure the radiator is full cold. Sometimes after filling, the radiator level will drop as it burps itself. If I drain and refill the radiator I generally have to add a bit in the radiator for like 3 times.
