Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.
You should add dye to the cooling system, run the motor for 10 minutes and find the leak with a black light.
Most parts stores will loan you the black light and sell you the dye.
This can be a freeze plug or an intake gasket leak if you're certain ther are no hoses or coolant tubes above.
