You need to buy, borrow, or rent a pressurizer that goes on in place of radiator cap and pump the system up with air...COLD. It is a hand-pump and wherever the leak is the coolant will come out visible to you. If/when you do that come on back and let us know what you found, and we will decide what to do.

It is coming from the water Pump.

Then you need to replace the water pump and while you are in there check your timing chain and replace if needed, replace the serpentine belt and tensioner while you are at it and check if there are some seals that need´s to be replaced while you are in there.

My problem was the water pump, but it was hard to figure out as the fluid was being picked up by the fan belt and flung up to the right side of the hood,so it appeared to be a leak by the hoses and cap. The water pump was not making a noise.
