Welcome to the site. There is freeze plugs on both sides of the block, has it froze lately or over heated?

Welcome to this forum! Get a pressure tester from Autozone's loaner program, and pump it up. You should be able to locate the leak within a minute or so.

I had an issue with that motor, kept losing antifreeze, leaving a puddle, overheating, huge mess. Ended up being the plenum gasket which I understand is pretty common. It was a little bit of a pain to do, there were a lot of things in the way to get it out, but it runs great now.

Thanks for all your info. I appreciate it.
