i went to my car on my lunch break and noticed a bunch of fluid under the passenger side of my car, i started up my car and got a low coolant level warning right on start up, since i was low on time i really had no chance to check everything, i did check the hoses to see if they were off but i found nothing, and by the time i got off of work it was way too dark to look into my engine bay, i happened to have dexcool in my trunk so i filled the radiator until it couldnt take any more and i drove home (8mi) with no overheating. what should i check for when i have time to look at the engine?
i have a 3400 are the elbows in the same positions? ill probably have to take it in after christmas =/, im not exactly the greatest at turning a wrench and my work hours have me swamped and should i get a flush and switch coolant?

Found the leak on my way to work, radiator hose has a small tear that was shooting coolant on my battery, luckily there's an AutoZone on my way to work, easy fix I can replace a hose and some clamps hahaha, thanks for the input though guys!!
