It goes into the cylinder probably is there any sign of air presure in your coolant system?

SOURCE: anti freeze leaking
Sounds like they installed the pump incorrectly. Gasket misalignment? Started right after the waterpump was installed? Hose clamp not quite tight enough? Just a thought. The passenger front wheel area is just the right area for it to be the pump. I hope this was able to help you. If you still need me, I'll be here. Best wishes to you.

SOURCE: Radiator is empty
Always fill you radiator & resevoir with a 50/50 mix of coolant / water. Your vehicle should have dexcool which is a red/orange colored coolant. You can buy a universal equivalent which is premixed and is yellow (not green). It is safe to add universal coolant but not green antifreeze. Premixed (it will say on jug) would be your safe bet. Fill the radiator, add to overflow tank to full cold line, run vehicle until fully warmed up. Let cool back down & then recheck.
Don't forget to check for leaks....it is not normal to have your coolant get that low. You likely are leaking coolant.
If this helps please rate me!
You can do it.

The belt has nothing to do with coolant leaks. You should however closely check all hoses for a leak as well as the water pump, which will not only drain the cooling system but also possibly leak/spray onto the belt making a squealing sound.

If it is a 6 cyl they are known for lower intake gasket failure. look by the drivers side near transmission that is where they leak. if it is leaking there it is about a $400.00 job to fix and unless you are qualified to do it you should go to a garage

The other thing you need to know is this: it may be time to replace your radiator or suffer the expense of a new head gasket if you dont. The tubes within radiators become clogged with age. Corrosion particles lodge themselves in the tubes over time and cause them to clog. The result is that tube no longer has coolant running through it to be cooled so the 'work' of cooling is left up to the remaining tubes. The more tubes that become clogged with age, the less efficient the radiator is in lowering the coolant temperature. WORSE STILL, this clogged tube phenom can also result in blowing head gaskets. Here's how. If you poured water into a section of pipe it would run out the other end as quickly as you poured it in. If you partially cover the end as you pour water in the top, the water does not escape as quickly as you are pouring it in, so it eventually overflows out the top as you continue pouring water in. This is what happens in your radiator, except, the water is being 'pushed' through the radiator by your water pump and because it cant exit the radiator as quickly as its being forced into it, the water pressure builds up between the pump and radiator. In between this pressure zone is your head gasket, usually the weakest pressure zone, meaning, its what gives first. The reason the water doesnt just exit through the presssure cap of the radiator is because the pressure within the radiator itself is not as great as the pressure zone created by the pump within the head. The pressure exerted on the water is greater because it is in a more narrow passage than the pressure being exerted on a larger area within the radiator. Sounds confusing I'm sure, but trust me on this. Few mechanics learn this until they replace a head gasket or two only to have them fail again within a short period of time because the radiator was never replaced!
