So i noticed today when i was coming out of sheetz that my truck had antifreeze leaking all over the ground. I drove it home, checked the overflow for cracks, but there was no holes or cracks. I just put on a new water pump on and it is still spraying antifreeze, put a new thermostat in and it is still spraying antifreeze, took the radiator hoses off and they have no holes. I can't tell where the antifreeze is commin from. It seems like it is coming from the upper part of the engine, because when it leaks it gets antifreeze all over the belt, and the belt throws it all over the engine. Please tell me your suggestions of what i should check next.

No its a 12v, and what do you mean by heater hoses
heater hoses go to the heater core to produce heat in the cab. When facing the engine from the front they are on the left and they go through the firewall from the block. They are full of antifreeze and could be your issue.

Look very carefully by the thermostat. If you have a head problem, many times the first leak is right where the thermostat is. It is so close it will look like it is the thermostat.
