Check the Heater hoses for a pin hole. If there is no coolant on the hoses. Check the water pump. Let the car warm up,than take a flash light look a the water pump. there is hole in the water pump that will starter leaking when the packing is bad in the pump. If you see coolant coming from the hole change out the water pump.
Quite often when replacing coolant in older vehicles new leaks start to show up. The newer technology in coolant makes it a really good cleaner, and when it I changed it would clean out any bit of rust scale exposing weak areas where new leaks can form. If the leak is coming from the front of the engine where the drive belts run, there's a good chance it is coming from the water pump.
under pump there's a weep hole, located in center of pump below the shaft that the pulley is attached, if coolant is coming out of that hole, pump is bad. otherwise, gaskets between pump / engine are leaking.
SOUND LIKE THERMOSTAT STICKING CLOSE.REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.ADD 50 /50 MIXTURE ANTIFREEZE AND WATER TO THE COOLANT SYSTEM.CHECK TO MAKE SURE WATER PUMP NOT LEAKING IF SO WATER PUMP NEED REPLACING. ALSO DO A QUICK CHECK.CHECK ENGINE OIL DIP STICK. IF LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE HEAD GASKET LEAKING.
On the under side of the water pump there is a hole called a weep hole its there to let you know that the seal is leaking on the pump and will need to be replaced soon so you don't have a major failer on the highway and damage your engine
If the coolant is coming out of the one that's more to the center of the engine, it's going to be your water pump, when water pumps go bad they will leak coolant out, water pumps have a little hole in back of the pulley, that when the seal goes bad it will leak coolant through there.
Check that the engine coolant is at the proper level. Check the condition of the radiator and associated hoses for any leaks or signs of breakage. A common cause of engine overheating is a faulty thermostat. This is a relatively cheap and inexpensive fix. Check the water pump and make sure that it is not leaking coolant. Most water pumps have a vent or "weep" hole. If any coolant in leaking from the pump it is defective. Make sure that the cooling fans operate properly when the engine gets to temperature. The fans should kick on to cool the engine. These are some things to consider. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
