    We can easily tell by pressure testing the cooling system. The average cost of diagnosis is about $25

    Is it leaking out in the front near the bumper onto your feet as you fill the rad. or at the rear near the firewall/windshield area? Got to be able to narrow it down some, IF it leaks that bad!
    Let a helper pour some water in while you watch where it comes out at.
