Here lately I have been adding a bit of coolant. I cannot seem to find a hose leak. What might be causing this slow leak to be happening, and where should I look etc...

It could be quite a bit of things. Any sign of any coolant on the ground?

on further inspection at the shop with the repair guy it was the hose coming off the main coolant hose pipe thing going somewhere else ...possibly the turbo...

I don't think I have a coolant leak, but I have a stupid LOW COOLANT light come on every so often? By sensor or a leak?
