on earlier models there are a number of coolant surfaces that could leak, thermostat, temp gauge manifold which feeds the heater, if you remove intake you may see better and where it is coming from, hose clamp, mating surfaces, etc.....
good luck!

Some auto parts stores will loan the use of a cooling system pressure tester, you might need the adapters as well.A strong flashlight and inspection mirrors can be useful to pinpoint a leak. Having said that; if it's difficult to determine exactly where a leak is, then the repair might be very challenging. If you do the repairs yourself, consider replacing "soft parts" that are disturbed or accessible.
