Probably a water pump seal unfortunately. Pressurize the system, with the engine off, use a mirror to look under the water pump pulley to see if any fluid is dripping from the water pump seal weep hole.
If it is, change the water pump.
Good luck, let me know.

2006 Ford Taurus with a coolant leak I cannot find where the leak is coming from exactly it is the front passenger side kind of by the tire my car does not overheat what do I do

to find coolant leaks have the coolant system pressurized and check for pressure loss
That way you have time to look for the leak
Checking the radiator level every morning before starting will also reveal if the system is leaking
If could be a blocked drain for the ac system or rusted hole in the plenum chamber at the bottom of the windscreen that is letting water in

Water leaks under dashboard on passenger side in my 2000 nissan maxima

If it is antifreeze, your heater core is leaking and will have to be bypassed until you can have it fixed. Bypassing requires removing the two coolant hoses that go into the firewall on the passengerside, and making these two hoses connect by use of a pipe and clamps.
If it is just water, either your drain tube for the ac is plugged, or you have a water leak when it rains, usually from the air vent into the heater box-requires dissembly to get to it, probably a piece of rubber molding that has come loose.

Leaking fluid under dash in car on passenger side also has load thumping noise when steering car into turns on the right side

You dont mention the year, make or model of your vehicle but generally a fluid leak on the passenger side interior is a coolant leak possibly from a defective heater core.Does it have a sort of sweet smell like antifreeze ? Also check under the hood to see if your engine coolant is low.

Loosing antifreeze and I can't find the leak oil is clean and exhaust looks OK not white smoke. Hvae a 91 Grand Marquis

check the carpet under the heater core in the interior. Check the radiator overflow bottle--sometimes they get a small crack at the bottom and weep out coolant. Check for any heater hose or other coolant hose clamp to be weeping coolant onto hot exhaust parts. The coolant will evaporate and you'll never see a puddle. The best time to check is just after engine shut down when coolant temp and pressure is highest.

I have a 1999 Kia Sportage. Was driving and water

Sounds like the heater core has a leak. When you get low on coolant, the temp gauge will start to fluctuate.

Antifeeze leak on my 2000 VW Beetle Turbo

Most likely a leaky gasket. The water pump is a likely candidate, but also could be from a bad radiator hose/thermostat connection. Would suggest washing down the engine with a hose connected to the hot water. While the engine is cold use the hose to wash off the oil & grease deposits and old antifreeze. Allow the engine to dry without running the car. Once dry start the car and be prepared to look for the first sign of a leak. Sounds like a dealer issue since there is very little work clearence between the front of the engine and the car body. Barely enough room to be able to change the serpentine belt.

Leak of antifreeze

This leak is probably coming from one of the 2 coolant lines that feed and return coolant from the heater core. It best be that you get it repaired before you lose to much coolant.
