Hi - this problem sounds a bit more challenging as you have done all the logical things - well done! Remaining possibilities include coolant leaking into the exhaust (cracked cylinder head) which would give you white smoke with a sweet smell out of the exhaust. The remaining choice is a very small leak that is drying before it drips. It will leave a trace over time, but may take a while. A small leak like this can be discovered by adding an ultraviolet dye to the coolant, let it circulate enough to become thoroughly mixed with the coolant, then use a black light to help discover where it’s leaking. I recommend acoolant leak inspection performed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
