    Start by looking at the cooling line that goes/did go to the throttle body. That might have let go.

    ahh ok, mine did that not to long ago. Turns out it was the water pump that was leaking. IF you can get in there with a flash light and look along the profile, you may see it coming out from behind the pully.

    Yeap I did, but comfirm that is what it is first, cause it's not cheap (not where I am anyways). But that would be my first guess as to where the coolant is coming from

    lol I know how you feel it was 280 for mine, a remaned with no core charge. I was quated any where from 524 for an OEM and 365 for a remaned by the dealer. I think summit or jegs has them for around 180.
