Icon4 Help! 4.0 gulpin down coolant!

my 4.0 with 112xxx miles gulps down coolant every two days or so. I fill the reservoir and two days later its empty! Anyone have the same problem or have any advice on what it might be? Coolant is $20 a pop and i lost my job so i cant afford this. Rather spend the money to have it fixed. Thanks y'all!

Check around your thermostat housing and all your hoses as well. My thermostat housing was cracked and would start spitting coolant after it got good and hot.
