2008 Grand Scenic 2.0dci coolant loss

Hi folks,
I have noticed a drop in coolant. I filled it up about 5 weeks ago, and yesterday had to drop another litre in. Th car is running fine and the temperature is good.
I just wondered if there are any "classic" problems with the coolant system on these cars so i can check out specific things before a mammoth tear down.
I am a competent diy'er, just hoping there is a simple fix! I had a quick look whilst i was doing the oil and fuel filter yesterday and there were no big signs of water leaking.

Any help appreciated!

Re: 2008 Grand Scenic 2.0dci coolant loss

Any signs of water in oil or vice versa ?

I assume starting and running okay?

List is basically same as any other motor.
Anything from minor leak on hose, rad or cooling matrix to head gasket fubar.

Personally I would not be thinking the worst BTW, no real history of HG failure on these.

Pipes joints and good coating of looking at, signs of staining as water may evaporate with no wet bits.
Thermostat housing weeping if one of the plastic ones
Pressure cap on bottle
Backfixer and batfink5 like this.

Yep If an M9R, Deffo plaggy thermostat housing.
My best bet = Waterpump. Throws water about & evaporates leaving no trace.

Easy on an M9R, runs off Aux Belt (Fan Belt for grandads).
