    check for leak at heater hose connections, near the firewall. Also check to see if the coolent is coming from the heater case. If so you probably have a leak in the heater core.
    You can also turn on the defroster if you get a sweet smelling mist on the windshield, then
    it is most likely you have a heater core leak and you would need to replace it.
