Check the passenger's floor- it is probably wet. A bad heater core maybe the culprit.

Why does your Chevy Lumina heater not work?

check your coolant ASAP. If your coolant is low, you see any signs of oil in the coolant, or signs of coolant in the oil you may be losing it to a gasket leak. Have a mechanic check your intake manifold gasket. This is huge problem with the 3.1L engines and can lead to engine failure if not fixed early. Signs of oil in coolant would be stuff floating in the reservoir and muddy colored coolant. Signs of coolant in the oil could be lots of white vapor (water) in exhaust and light tan foamy stuff on the oil fill cap or around the hole for the cap. For no heat, there are other things you could check like your thermostat and water pump but the failed gasket will kill the engine. I only mention this because the heater in my Lumina took 10-15 minutes when it did work and not getting my gasket fixed killed the engine.

Where in a 2001 ford explorer using a gallon of coolant per week with no visible external leaks dry passenger floor no white smoke and no milkshaking in the oil is the coolant going?

it is possible to have a small leak on the head gasket ,enough to let the coolant still leak into the clyinders and will account for a gallon to go weekly,and still show no signs of white smoke in the exhaust,also might want to check around the radiator fill neck to make sure it does not show a sign of cracks,this can cause coolant to vaporize out of the radiator and you will never see it leaking.....

Why would the coolant tank keep losing coolant but no leaks on a small block Chevy?

The coolant could be getting into your oil, or it could be going out the exhaust from a blown head gasket or a cracked head you will probably be able to smell a sweet smell near the exhaust if its being burned... Try a new radiator cap. Much cheaper fix, then above. These engines are also notorious for blown intake manifold gaskets. If the leak is not evident, check around the top of the engine and along the sides of the heads for signs of leakage. A service center can pressure test it for a nominal charge.
