Might be the water pump.

My bet is the water pump. There should be a weep hole in the pump. Check it for any signs of coolant. If there is, it is the water pump. A good idea is to change the hoses if you can when you change the water pump also. It may cost a "Franklin" but in the long run, worth it. The car is 12 years old and if they have not been changed yet, as long as your tearing down the water pump and connections, you have room to change the hoses. Use NEW antifreeze also.
