    What used to be called a 'freeze plug'. They are holes in the casting that are plugged with a steel disc. May have fallen out, or rusted through. bob

Lotsa stuff around there carrying antifreeze.
The lower rad hose comes up and goes behind the head, where it meets the thermostat. Then you've got a steeel tube that goes to the water pump. O- rings seal the lot. Then there are the heater hoses and the little ones to the EACV/IAC.
Any idea *what* "side" of the motor? Front? Back? Passenger side? Driver side?

its coming from the drivers side. it appears to be coming from a pully or definately somewhere very close to the pully. This is on a friends car, he says that there is a "plastic piece" on the other side of the pully that looks melted, any idea what that could be? Possibly the source???

Water pump leaking?
If the leak is in that area, you'd better get it professionally looked at ASAP. A failed water pump will wreck lots of very expensive stuff.
