it should be around the pump usually around the bottom or the side pr the pump near
the shaft, take it up the road and then let it almost over heat and bring it home cut it off and see if it drains.

My y8 did the same thing when i drove to florida, got down there started overheating. I did a compression test everything was fine. started to drive it back, it would overheat and push all the coolant out. got back pulled the head off and it was the gasket between the #2 and #3 cylinder
