Oh jeez! That happened to me and it was my water pump! I realized that after I blew a hose and cracked one of my heads! If you don't get it fixed right away this might happen to you and it is NOT cheap! I have a 92 4 runner and everything you said was exactly what I went through. I had a leak, thought it was my radiator (which I had to replace that too) I just kept adding water making sure the temp needle stayed below the half mark. I thought as long as it didn't over heat I was good to go! Not true. If your engine stays even a lil bit on the hotter side, you take the risk of messing your heads up. O! And mine was leaking too, I could see the drip but did not know where it was coming from, it was coming from my water pump. So get it checked ASAP!
