Running out from where?

Either from the hose or radiator

Top or bottom..or is it leaking so bad it's hard to tell? How much coolant and how often do you add? and do you add to radiator or plastic reservoir? I know, so many questions, just trying to narrow this down

Need to know if it is a sealed system..has a radiator cap or pressurized overflow?

No not all if you can help me will be great i add the coolant to the plastic reservoir and the engine oil where it normally goes its not leaking from the top

This is one that is very difficult without being at the car. Yeah, I guess I am making excuses for my ignorance...but I responded because I was thinking I could give a generic answer. What needs to happen is clean everything as well as possible, do NOT use a car-wash wand, then have another look. Try to find source of leak, they are probably unrelated. Sorry 'bout that, wish I could do better.
