That sounds like the cooling system reservoir area. Those blow out coolant, not generally just water, when pressure forces the coolant past the radiator cap. You could have a crack or a bad gasket. Open the hood and see where all the dampness stain is, that would be a clue. You might be lucky and only have a bad hose.

Freeze plug

The passenger side of the engine is also where the water pump sits.
The freeze plugs would be along the block between the engine and the radiator and between the engine and the firewall.
The water pump would be behind the serpentine belt or the timing cover depending on which engine you have.

Have a 94 Buick century. Replaced thermostate. Running hot. Looks as tho is leaking underneath front near pump. And also in passenger floor board can't see the leak from inside. It's just alwa

Whenever I see a system which is leaking from more than one or two places, I do a head gasket check because that tells me that the system is experiencing above normal pressures. the wet floor is a heater core. whether it's a water pump or some other thing near it only you can tell. Actually it rarely happens, but the wet floor could be the hose where it meets the heater core at the firewall; again, only you will be able to tell the difference. if the hose connection looks dry, assume that it is the core itself.

Leaking anti fz.near pass/side tire

not sure what side is the front of the motor on that but likely the front is toward the passenger side. it's likely leaking from the "weep" holes on the water pump. have it put on a lift to check that or if you can get under it enough and use a flashlight have a look there.

Leaking anti freeze in the right under the hood near right front tire

it could be the water pump if the front of the engine is on that side. or heater hoses. with the engine cold, fill the system full. use straight water so you won't waste anti freeze. run the car until it gets hot. the system will pressurize. inspect the suspected area. the leak should be apparent. if the leak appears to be running from the engine block, it's most likely the pump.

My 2002 audi a4 1.8t...somewhere in the vicinity of the passengers rear tire,i hear an air leak.its not the tire.i try to listen where its coming from exactly but can figure it out.its near the fuel filter...

I think you are hearing your fuel-pump. Try a few different things, with someone close to where you can hear the sound. Talk with that person. Ask if they can hear the sound with the car off, with the car in the run position(not running), and with the car running. Take notes, If the car has rear air-ride it could be an air leak. But it could also be the fuel-pump or an exhaust leak.
