First check the oil level at the dipstick. Make sure it does not look like chocolate milk. Also, see if the coolant reservoir and radiator is full.
The most common cause of coolant leaks on this engine ar the heater control valve on the passenger side of the engine just above the valve cover. Also, check the thermostat housing just below the throttle body.
