My coolant is leaking somewhere.
I cant find out where...The hose that connect from the radiator to the engine itself might be leaking i think..ill post a picture soon..but the problem is if it was it is small leak like a drop..and this is the second time i had to fill the coolant since 2 weeks ago or around that..and it sucks..any suggestions?
and there is a whine sound too...i think it is my belts since im at 80,000 miles..it right where the power steering and belts are so ya..
any help?

Kinda depends on how much wrenching has been done over the years... first look at all the hose connections... look for drops on the ground, look for wet places on the engine. I keep my engine and compartment mighty clean, and that helps a lot when it comes to watching for leaks.

Its more than likely your water pump. They are notorious for leaking. Might as well do your timing belt replacement and your water pump since youll be in there. You might not actually be able to see the leak unless you pull the cover off the front of the engine.

what type of maintance have you been doing?? just oil?? belts, hoses should of been done at 60k. 90k for v6's is a big one, time belt water pump also. don't know about your rack, probably something too, what is the steering fluid level at?

This has nothing to do with your coolant issue but it looks like you have a torn steering rack boot. Its pretty small right now but that doesn't mean you should put off replacing it since it protects your inner tie rod end which use lubricated ball joints. If water and/or mud get in there and are left alone long enough you will end up having to replace the inner tre in addition to the boot. Just something to think about.
