So I filled it up with coolant and since then I have to add antifreeze as it leaks somewhere. Well I found the leak and it's a small tube on one coolant leak from under or beside throttle body

There are 2 small hoses for the throttle body there as well as the lower intake. Get it pressure tested to determine the failure.

I can see those 2 other hoses but the one I'm talking about is really short and I saw the coolant leaking from it earlier this afternoon. It bends almost in a U shape.

Common failure. You can get them at any parts store.

Get someone from parts to come out and see it. It is not easy to do. It takes about 1.5 hours for a tech

There is problem as I live in a small town and the nearest place is over 40 min away with anyone being certified.I don't know if the way it leaks if it'll even make it that far.I just need to know what it is so I can order it next time I'm in the city.

Bypass tubes/hoses. Like I said, most parts stores have them and they are inexpensive.
