It is most likely your water pump that has gone. how quickly does the coolant leak through?

Yeah its draining a constant stream about the size of about 4 spaghetti noodles I did some research and my water pump is behind the timing belt cover so your probably right I'll let ya'll know. Thx bro.

i changed my 86's water pump fairly easily after the fan was out, just gotta take that cover off after taking the belts off. it was 15 bucks 4 years ago at car quest.
