I really don't understand what you are asking. Anti-freeze is leaking because you have a leak. But you already know that. If you are smelling coolant at the exhaust, then STOP driving this vehicle. You have a blown head gasket or a cracked head, or both. Serious engine damage will occur if you continue to drive it. Anti-Freeze smells sweet.
