    My 1986 k5 blazer seems to be losing a good amount of antifreeze. The MILLION dollar question is where is it going.
    No white smoke. Can not see any leaks. Is this common?

    Check your overflow res. for leak trails. Mine had that ....pissed me off for the longest time.

    radar, the first step is to pressurized the system with a radiator tester. Some places rent them or have a gas station do it for you. You should be able to find the leak if it's not a head gasket or internal block crack. That will surface when you start noticing whip cream in you crankcase oil.
