check the appearance of engine oil. if it is milky, or very opaque, chances are you have a pinhole in the head gasket. rather unlikely given normal leak down.
check the water pump for evidence of leaks, usually dried up yellowish goo underneath. often gaskets leak there.
check the intergrity of the collant reservoir. small crack will leak, and often this is so hidden you cannot appreciate it.
