i had the same problem.
it was the peice right above were you say"i have a puddle of coolant here"(red arrow)that tube is held in by a plastic clip thing----lack of better words :lol: the rubber seal is probably cooked.
new peice costs about 10$(can) easy fix
hope that helps

id check everything for snuggness and tightness,

id also take out the thermostate and check the seal, and may just as well replace it at the same time, and get a new seal for the housing,

other than that its prolly nothing too bad, prolly just a loose clamp :)

Snap-on makes an ultraviolet pen light that's great for detecting coolant leaks. it's like 20 bucks but it's a huge time saver :)
will any ultraviolet light work ? cz i still got a small one on the other side of the engine.....
yep 8)

ya the cooling system always seem to be a chain of events if its not properly maintained it was for me.just follow the path it take around the engine an wiggle/poke at things.i found its easiest when the engine is hot to find the leak cause of the presure.it will just keep leaking every time you fix just one thing(might not)cause its that whole "you are the weakest link" :x
