Leak on 90 Civic

it has about 155k miles on it i got it about 4 months ago have papers on repairs since the car has been owned A/C still works from factory about 2 months ago i bypass the heater core, as it leaked and i live in
Texas, so i do not need it for the last 2 days, it has been leaking at the bottom of the radiator, it gathers coolant at the bottom pan, then flows out to the bottom plastic sheild. i have been told that if the radiator leaks, then it would be a flow, but the leak is off and on i would run it for a while (10 mins) and no leak, but then i would run it for 5 mins and a leak i run the a/c and i think that makes it leak sooner, but i know for sure when the engine gets hot, the pressure in the radiator causes the leak. The engine space is VERY little, so i can not look under the radiator unless i remove the bumper, so i can not see if any hoses are cut/leaking. i can not see any hoses where it is leaking (right side, near the belts) I come to this groups, hoping that i can find any help, as i am a student, and can not afford to go to the shops, unless i need to Thank you

have 90 civics, declared poverty and strikingly similar communication issues.
regarding the vehicle, there are no radiator hoses near the belts so they can't be leaking in that location. and taking the bumper off won't help you see anything to do with radiator plumbing. also, how on earth is the heater core leaking? that'll only happen if you've done something, er, "unusual" with the coolant fluids.
you need to take this vehicle to someone that knows what they're looking at.

this is my 1st post on google groups, i heard this from a friend .. as far as "communication issues" i was simply throwing facts out there, so that the answer/reply would not include "how many miles are on the car" i have no clue why/how the heater core got a leak, i know that once i bypassed it, there was no overheating due to leaks
