My explorer is leaking coolant and it seems to be coming from either side. It runs fine and I have no problems except when I drive it down the highway for about 15 minutes it starts to have steam come up on the outside of the windshield and I can see it coming out the hood. We have tryed changing the coolant and we put in a new thermostat and it still does this. I have been hearing drips once and a while sizzling on the engine after I drove but thought nothing of it. We checked the oil and its not cloudy so I don't believe its a head gasket problem so I'm not sure where to go from here?

Check your coolant hoses since its dripping. A good thing to do is listen for it. Or coat the engine with babypowder, youll easily see where its comign from then.
