My car is leaking coolant, i think it is from the radiator and then being spread around by the thermo fans, as it looks like this (the green stuff is where it is wet) (this pic isnt my car, my DC isnt workin)

Any Suggestions

I dont care how fast your car is, mine goes faster through the bush.

Check the coolant line that runs along the top of the radiator. Otherwise only other source would be the radiator for it to spread like that. Water pump leak wouldn't spray up that far, thermostat housing couldn't reach the other side. No other choices really

pull the fans out
(remove air intake snorkel, wiring connections and 2 10mm headed bolts) and u can see the radiator.. also check top hose for leaks etc...
