Is it gushing out of the pressure cap on the radiator or coolant reservoir? if so its possible the head gasket is on its way out. when you start the vehicle is there any white smoke/steam coming out of the exhaust it doesn't have to be a cloud.
If you fill the system then run engine, let it get warm and leave the hood open, switch off engine and stand well back and try and see where the water comes out of.

U need to get under the car to see where the coolant is coming from. The car should be driven up on sturdy ramps, or placed on jack stands so u can safely go under the car to look for the source of the leak. It could be a heater hose, a radiator hose, freeze out plug in the block, the radiator. U must be careful of the hot coolant while checking it out! If u don't want to do the checking yourself, u should go to a garage with a lift. They can easily get under the car, and u can ask to see where the leak is. Get this checked asap, as u can blow the head gasket when the car overheats (this also may be the source of your leak) Let me know how u make out or if u need more info
