Default 2005 reno over heating with no signs of a leak

I replaced the oil sending unit that was part of the problem.
The car is over heating?
the cooling system is not giving me any signs of a leak. There are no puddles and no signs of a broken hose. There is no sign that it is leaking into the oil. Nothing.
Yet it is always out of fluid.
at idle it is fine I left it idle for an half hour trying see a leak nothing took it for a spin around the block and it jumps to red hot in the blink of an eye.
any ideas what is up.
I have owned the car for 3 years and not one problem out side of a broken cam shaft. a truly great car. But I am stumped

Thanks in advance

Shannon

So idling for 30 min it does not overheat? Do the fans cycle on and off?

You can try to look in the coolant reservoir while the engine is running to see if the coolant is swirling and circulating around - it should be visible moving around and circulate faster if you rev it up a bit... Just don't open it while the engine is already very hot. I had a water pump go bad a few years ago where the plastic impeller separated from the metal shaft - It would pump the coolant around somewhat while the engine was cool, but as it warmed up it pumped less and less.
