Maybe coming from the head and running down the rear of the engine? See any coolant from the top side of the engine?

top looks clean. dosent stink either. thinking an external leak at the head or a frost plug are most probable.... not real happy about that

that being said anyone know where the frost plugs are on the 2.5 especially the one (or more not sure the layout) near the back of the engine and or have any tricks to get them without pulling the engine.
