CHEVROLET MALIBU COOLANT PROBLEM

2000 Chevrolet Malibu • 250 miles

The coolant is draining out of the car, I fill the reservoir and not even 30 minutes later it's completely empty causing the car to run hot. (We never allowed it to over heat before we pull over) Well I spotted the coolant leaking out from the side of the engine where the water pump is. Only it's further down just above the frame of the car. It's to get to because we only have a scissor jack and I don't trust it. What could be causing the leak?

Hello first it still chould be a water pump issue, also it could be a heater hose or even a heater core issue. The other thing is it could be a intake

leak the 3100, 3400, and 3800, in multiple years have issues with the intake leaking. I would take the car too a shop to get it pressure tested to find out the problem
