There are all sorts of places that coolant can be leaking from. You just have to look until you locate it.

I would check the hoses leading into your radiator, and also the overflow for antifreeze. If that is not the problem, it could be your heater core. Your heater core might be leaking, you might have a hose leaking

your heater core is leaking. Needs to be replaced

Your heater core is leaking. It needs repaired or replaced.

The thermostat might need to be replaced. or the coolant level mite be low. it is a sign that it is. and also the type of coolant used if not flushed and replaced tends to clog the heater core. try flushing it out. lastly you have a bad intake gasket and leaking coolant out. 4.3's are notorious for this.

A faulty thermostat in a 2001 BMW 325CI can cause a coolant leak. The coolant may be leaking out a crack in the thermostat or through a warped edge. In some cases the problem may be just a bad gasket and not actually a problem with the thermostat at all.

Is it too full? Well some vehicles are equiped with a little hose that will let coolant out if there is too much or too much pressure, but not all vehicles will have it. (If you are talking about the overflow tank, if the radiator cap is leaking, check to see if the cap is in good condition)

maybe not. check engine oil for color and quantity. if oil is white to grey, then there is coolant leaking into pressure might be caused by bad radiator cap.this will also allow coolant to escape

It could be a number of things, a clogged radiator,bad thermostat,low coolant, hoses leaking coolant, radiator fan not working,or a leaking head gasket. Hope this helps you.

Where is it leaking? That pressure test sounds funny, why would you pressurize only the pump and radiator? If you are leaking coolant outside the engine, locate the source. If you are losing it from the radiator but cannot find a puddle suspect a head gasket problem. Check the Radiator cap first, if it is bad high pressure coolant will travel back to the overflow bottle.

it's leaking coolant. Needs to be replaced.
