Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!If there is coolant leaking from behind the engine area it could be a heater hose, the heater core, a leaking headgasket or it could be a freeze plug on the back of the head or block.It sounds like the leak is substantial which should make it easy to find. What you'll need to do is add water or coolant until the leak starts and then you'll most likely need to start underneath the vehicle to look for the source. Start at the firewall and see if it appears to be coming from a heater hose or a tube coming from the firewall itself. If it's coming from an open tube on the firewall then the heater core is leaking.If it's coming from the engine then the leak could be a headgasket (not that likely) or freeze plug. If you find it is leaking from the bellhousing then it's going to be a freeze plug.
