intake manafold could be leaking at the seal... quite common... also a hose leak is possible too... there are many locations for a hose to be leaking but most commonly it would be at the back of the engine where the coolant enters the cooling system... there should be a connector which could be leaking... If not there then it is possible you have a leaky head gasket but that would result in catastrophic engine failure in very little time... if you check your oil and you can see dots in it or it looks milky then thats the diagnosis... means get it into the shop...

There is a tiny little u-shaped hose under the throttle body that tends to leak too... Very Hard to see.... Mine leaked for months before it finally blew..... Then I discovered it. LOL Just FYI!!!!

if the manafold is leaking you may notice a small drip developing under the car... you could also check the valley betwen the cylinder banks for coolant accumulation...
