coolant leak

ok so i start the 90 up this morning no problem, get to the place i was going, and when i come back outside there is coolant pooring out of the truck. it was not commin directly from the radiator or any visible hose, but rather from right below the air intake maybe a little off to the left of it but essentially right there. you guys have any thoughts on whats goin on?

Haven't experienced it myself, but sounds like that's the demon heater element or heater hose.


Follow-up Post:

You can cut a hose and bypass it, a lot of guys down south here just bypass and forget the heater core.

He has a soft top. Even in So. Cal., you want the heater on a cold night in a convertible with the top down. 'used to do that in my girlfriend's (now wife) Alpha when we lived down there.
