SOURCE: Leaking coolant
Highly unlikely that is the case more likely it is the radiator leaking onto the fan. Also check the upper hose to make sure that it doesnt have a pin hole in it. Good luck and dont forget to rate.

SOURCE: Coolant leak That can't be found
The leak can be from a number of places. The radiator may be leaking, a freeze out plug on the block, a crack in the block, the head gasket, etc. The only way to figure it out is to carefully check under and above the engine. You can purchase a small mirror with an extending handle to view the difficult tight areas (available at most auto parts stores). The reservoir can even have a split in it where it's difficult to see, like in the bottom, or up against the fender. Check the hose from the bottle also. So pick up a mirror, and start your detective work. Since it leaks so quickly, it should be pretty easy to track down. When you go under the car, make sure wheels are blocked, and car is on safety stands. Good luck, let me know what you find.

1997 Plymouth Neon, have replaced radiator, radiation cap, thermostate and hoses, still run hot. Fans do not seem to come on, where is the temperature sensor on this vehicle?

What exactly is the "round plug type thing" near the firewall [passenger side]? Is it a sensor of some type? I, too, have a coolant leak here on my 2001 Durango; its tucked in rather tightly near the hood/firewall corner. My electric fan is not kicking on; vehicle overheated tonight. (4.7 liter)
