It can be many things. As the car is 14 years old, you need to just perform a complete cooling system maintenance. With the heater in the hot position, drain the system and flush out all the old coolant. Replace the thermostat, and pour in a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water. Bleed all air from the system. Be sure and check the pump & cooling fan operation, and clean all debris from the outside of the radiator. If you are loosing coolant with no apparent leak, you possibly may have a blown head gasket. White sweet smelling smoke at the tailpipe, air bubbles at the radiator opening, or a milky substance on the underside of the oil fill cap is a sign of a blown head gasket. Stop driving the car until you have this fixed or you will do serious damage.

The miracle of driving out an evil spirit is important in that it demonstrates that evil spirits are subject to the Living God and those who were acting in accordance with his will/command.
