Pressure test the cooling system. This will cause it to leak while engine is off and cool. A small inspection mirror helps to see in all the tight spaces.

If it's the 3.4 L V6 it's most likely the head gasket. If it's the 3.8L it's most likely the intake manifold gasket. But as dandy said have it pressure tested to be sure. At least you'll know where to look. HTH. -Jim
