Honestly, it sounds like the waterpump may be leaking and coolant is getting on the serp belt and flinging on the hood.
Look at the waterpump. On the bottom there is a seep hole. When the seal or bearing goes bad in the pump, that is where it will leak. Check for evidence of coolant.
Let me know what you find.
