There is some detection fluid that you can get to put in and it will show you where as it is a florescent color, not sure as to how much it cost though. Hope that helps/helped a little bit anyway!

depending on where the leak is, and if it is leaking on a very hot portion of the engine, the water will turn to steam and you not see a drip, especially is something is dripping on the exhaust manifold. A hissing sound when the engine is off is a sure sign there is a leak under pressure. Check the thermostat housing, especially if it is plastic and see if it is leaking slightly there.
