Anyways I parked it went to bed however in the morning I realised the coolant is pouring out from under the car at mid engine point like a steady tap. I topped up coolant but in an hour it was empty again. Obviously all pouring out under the car. I am really worried now, I don't know what it could be, I have heard it could be the water pump or loose hose...blah blah but I was hoping one of you experts could shed more light on why this has happened and what could be the possible solution. Will really appreciate your help guys!
No need to panic, it sounds like a hose or the water pump. Either is easily diagnosed and repaired. You cannot run the car until it is repaired however or the car can be severely damaged, perhaps enough to make it not worth repairing.
