Squirts where and what color smoke, white?

Next to the engine block left side, white smoke. Looks like it may be a busted hose but im not sure

Does it smoke out the tail pipe or just at the leak area
on May 09, 2014
just the engine

Pressure test the cooling system to find it.

how would I do that

Get a cooling system pressure tester and pressure up the cooling system to force the leak and find it.

Hmm....sounds like a coolant leak. Possibly a bad seal or faulty water pump. Check hoses for wear as well.
