    Dry your engine off completely. Go to the dollar store and buy 2 containers of baby powder. Spray the powder all over your engine then start it up and look for the leak, it will be visible in the powder. If you still can't find it the dealership has an ultraviolet solution they can add to your coolant then check it with a black light.
    Hope this helps.
