everytime i drive my car, and i park and step outside, there's a noticable smell of coolant around my hood.

i took it to the dealer and they pumped some glowing fluid through my (whatever) and said there was a leak and they retightened all the hoses and blah blah blah.

BUT MY CAR STILL SMELLS LIKE COOLANT! and my coolant seems to disappear every 2 months or so.

i see no visible leaking... it only smells like coolant. any guesses why?

If you paid the dealer to fix it take it back before your "waranty" on that repair expires. They obviously didn't find/repair the leak(s). There are several gaskets, hoses and fittings that could leak coolant. When the water pump wears out it starts to leak coolant.
