Need to get one of those devices to pressurize the coolant system when cold. Then closely inspect to determine leak location.
Several years ago, I had this happen on a ford. Stupidly, I convinced my self it was the head gasket. After replacing, still leaking coolant! I was mortified.
This'll sound funny but it actually worked: I sealed my lips around the coolant reservoir (while cold) and pressurized with my breath alone. My wife could see the leak squirting water but didn't really know what she was looking at. So, we reversed roles, she blew and I watched: turned out it was the front engine cover gasket.
