Question 93 Dodge Caravan over heats

I know the reason it overheats, it is losing coolant. About once a week the reserve tank will be dry. But I can't find where the leak is. I replaced the head gaskets and had the heads done about 2 years ago. It has 160,000 miles on the 3.3 liter motor and runs well besides having to keep up with the water. Any advice

Change the radiator cap, cheap insurance right there...

Check the weephole at the water pump for a dried trail of coolant as well.

Barring that, how old is the radiator? Was it at least professionally flushed when the gaskets were done? That being said, that would be my next plan of attack.

How old's the thermostat? When's the last time the coolant was flushed?
