99 Pontiac Sunfire. Coolant ran low & got a light on dash. Refilled coolant & it took a lot. Several days later while driving really slow the car got very hot. Checked and the coolant tank was empty. I poured in the coolant I had left and I could hear it pouring right down into the engine below. Not sure if there's a leak or if the coolant was so low that it sucked everything into the engine and needs more?
