This is exactly how my modded (IA stage 1) 5000 tqa acted right before I
blew a head gasket. I focused on a coolant leak and kept filling her up, but
couldn't, for the life of me, locate a leak. It drove me nuts, but then
after about 150 miles the gasket blew, and I knew where all the coolant was
going. BTW, there was no white smoke or other indication of a problem w/ the
head until after the gasket fully quit.

Others may know more. . . .

Hopefully you have a different issue.
