Its not coming from the front if the car so I don't think there is a crack in the radiator. It is coming out from behind the front passenger tire. I've checked the hoses coming from the holding tank and all couplings. I've taped up several possible leaks, but I'm still losing coolant. I've lost half a tank over the course of only a few hours. Is there a hose I can't see from under the hood?

Sounds like a water pump. It is common and that is the place the leak would show.

It is very tight. Pump and labor is about 250-300.

Take a close look @ the right side fire wall. There is a tube that let's evaporator condition drip out. If the heater core leaks it to will leak out of that tube.
