Introducing the Super Amazing Disappearing Coolant Trick!
Take 50/50 coolant and add them into your coolant system and watch as you keep having to add it periodically. then put in a moroso hiflo water pump, griffin radiator, new radiator cap and 2 new thermostats and watch it do nothing.
ok enough of that.
i also did a pressure check and all 8 cylinders hold equal pressure. my exhaust is neither blue or white. my oil is not chocolate milk. i don't see any wet spots in the engine bay or underneath where i park. i previously found what looked like stabs with a knife in a couple of my hoses; so i inspected and replace all that were stabbed, stiff and dry rotted. i added clamps to some hoses that were not clamped down. my overflow tank does not have a hole it it. my passenger seat is not flooded with coolant. one slight probability would be the coolant system pressure test which had a really slow leak, but the pump i used was crappy and didn't really seal over the radiator too well. little did i know when i bought the car, it had green and dexcool coolant together; so i had it flushed twice. i got green only in there now. the AC doesn't work, but i think i just need to add more freon. the heat AC works fine.
i'll check the spark plugs and i got some UV dye. i'll post what i find probably late friday. in the meantime, is there any other suggestions?

I have a small leak where the upper hose meets the radiator. It usually doesn't get wet, but when the engine heats up and the coolant begins evaporating it steams out.

the upper hose that meets the radiator was one of the hoses i replaced. i also replaced the little ones near the thermostat, the ones on the back of the upper manifold and i think the lower radiator one too. i also don't notice any steam when the engine warms up. the stock dash temp gauge reads about 1/4 way up (i'm not sure which line it is off the top of my head) consistantly after i put the water pump, rad, thermostat and flushed it.
how would i go about checking the heater core for a small leak?

You may want to try bypassing your heater core to see if it's not going into there.

I replaced my hoses too, and it didn't stop it. You can kinda hear it whistle for a minute after you turn of the car.
