My wifes car is leaking coolant at a hight rate. The car runs just fine. And the only place I can find coolant is to the right under side of the engine near the thermostat. But it doesant seem to be coming from the thermostat. It is lower and to the left of it. It seams to be colecting in a pool in a divet. I have no idea what could be leaking in that area.

Could be the water hoses, water pump, freeze plug, intake manifold-you need to look closer in order for us to help-

Already replaced hoses. And water pump is on other side of engine. I dont know what the freeze plug is. But the intake is right above the thermostat and were the leak is. How can I see if its the intake manifold. And I assume it cant be the head or head gasket if the leak is external. Thank you for your help.
