Antifreeze issues

I was returning home in my 1987 Mallard Sprinter class A. It is a p30 chassis with a 454. I came to a stop where I turn into my neighborhood and when I stopped it was smoking lightly. The temp guage wasnt even at the halfway point. I was just blocks away so I made it home quickly and shut it off. I looked underneath and antifreeze was coming out right by the fan. I don't know what the issue is. I thought maybe a waterpump, thermostat maybe?? Any help is appreciated.

When this kind of problem comes up it is best to crawl under and all over it to see what is going on with the anti-freeze leak. I would also think a leak like you are talking about would not be hard to see, but to sit here and type and guess at what it could be could go on for quite a while. It could be just a number of things that could of failed on the cooling system. If you cannot perform the task of finding the leak you are going to have to find someone to come to you or more than likely you are going to have to take it to a garage to have it fixed. Good luck

May be a hose but that area is often the water pump

When you say it was coming out right by the fan are you referring to the fan blades? If so, I would suspect a radiator leak. The fan pulls air through the radiator, if steam was evident in the area of the fan blades the radiator is a prime suspect.
