Default Honda accord type r 1999 loosing water and pressurisin?

My Honda accord 1999 type r is loosing a lot of water on short journeys and both pipes to and from radiator are solid, I have bled the radiator to let any excess air and engine has been done also but this still keeps happening. Also when driving I can smell a hot water smell inside car through air vents and when I stop car there is steam comes from the front if it has been on a long journey. The gauge inside car the temp is sit tin at normal, please can someone help as I don't want to take it to a mechanic in case it's big ££££ I'd rather try everything I can first. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Just because your pipes are solid doesn't mean their is no cracks or leaks on them. What about the hoses that go to and from the engine. The best way to check for leaks is to get a pressure tester for radiators. I had some problem a few weeks ago the hose only cost $10 but the shop charged me $110 altogether for their time so that wasn't so bad.
