I have a 2006 Hyundai Tucson 2.7 v6 fwd, it seems to go through coolant, every time I change the oil I have to refill the coolant reservoir, theres no coolant leak anywhere, im just wondering if its normal to have to keep refilling the coolant reservoir so often?

Its a closed system, so it has to be going somewhere.

If its every Oil change, it could be a very slow, seeping leak that happens when the system is under pressure (while driving) and just evaporates...so you'd never see it.

A pressure test of your cooling system can help reveal this....as a start.

AKA....there IS a leak somewhere; you just haven't found it yet.

If it is not leaking out somewhere, it might be leaking IN.....to one or more cylinders and the oil from a head gasket fault.

Do you have white foamy stuff on your dipstick or the oil filler cap ??

With cool engine, open the filler cap. Check the condition of the gasket, is it seated properly, any wrap/crease on it.
Also check around the neck around the fill cap for any green dots.

Once my old Integra actually seeing green dots & no leak at the hose joints. Finally found out it was the faulty filler cap.

Replace cap.
Next check each hose at connection/clamp.
I had an upper hose at the clamp start as a pinhole then as residue built up, the leak increased. The stock clamp was failing, I guess. Replaced hose and used aftermarket clamp.
