My buddy had a leak appear in the same area under his Monte, ended up being the left front edge of the radiator, on the end stack. There was a pinhole opening which would dump a shocking amount of coolant in a very short time.

It was very difficult to spot, the stream was so small but high pressure. Very high up on the stack.
