Sorry, from what tank? There really should be any fluid coming out from anywhere but maybe, it's coming from the plenum chamber or another void in the vehicle.

Is the coolant overfilled? can you tell if the leakage is from the cap or a hose connection?

Is the car only jacked up or is it on props therefore much higher? I would be surprised if on normal jacks there would be any reason for leaks.

Then in the interim, if you are not to start the car, how about extracting a couple of pints, and see if that stops it?
