coolant leak???

so i have a slow coolant leak coming from somewere ill fill teh resevior and within a week its low again down to the b***om of the resevior. ive looked everywhere under the hood and under put cardboard under the car after filling it up so i would see it and i saw no drips or anything. it doesnt look like there is coolant in the oil and the exhaust dosent smell like it burnign coolant. anyone have this happening or know what it is. also last time i had the oil changed they said there was alot of sludge in my filter even though i run full synthetic and have oil changed regularly.

lol, my car is in the shop right now because of this. its the water pump. I thought i was the head gasket, but becasue there isnt an coolent in they oil its not comming from the head. there is no leak when stitting still is becasue it has to be under pressure to start leaking. But as your driving and under boost that when it will leak.

did the new water pump fix your leak cause i just got mine back from the dealership and they said they pressure tested it and they couldnt find a leak so they gave it back and said bring it in again if it starts leaking again
