    Check at the bottom of the radiator, on the sides for signs of coolant. The radiators leak quite often on these and it's a good chance this may be your leak.

    I would suggest pressure tesing the cooling system and adding dye. If the pressure drops, there is a leak. You also could be burning coolant, which would indicate a possible cylinder head gasket issue.
