It just now started within the last week, and it gets worse as it goes, I already know that it's overheating because I smell it and now, I see the leak coming from the right passenger underneath the engine. All the coolant from the reservoir is gone, so, I imagine the radiators empty too. I tried to open it, it won't even open. I couldn't get it open. I don't know.

Hello,

Coolant can leak from any number of components. It can leak from the radiator, any of the hoses, water pump, thermostat housing etc.

The best course of action would be to do a thorough inspection and locate the leak. One thing to keep in mind is you do not want to drive the vehicle when it is low or coolant or leaking excessively. As you know this will lead to the engine overheating and cause damage to the engine.

Take a look at this guide, it covers the typical coolant leak and what to look for:

Please let me know what you find or if you have any questions.
Thank you.
