Default Had overheating issue and Coolant leaking from intake Side??

I was driving my car and heard a slight audible pop and kept driving normally.. watching my temp guage it started to go up slowly.. pulled over and it was steaming from the front of the intake area.. Could pinpoint the leak at the moment.. Is their coolant lines or plugs that couldve popped or broke in that area.... Hopefully Its not a bhg because their was no white smoke and the motor still ran fine.?? any ideas?

probably a hose, because there are a few small ones there by the t-stat

I'd also take a look at the hoses at the throttle body.

It's good advice though. I just wish the one my work has for rent/buy fit on small Radiator necks and caps. I swear they just assume everyone is driving a 1970's Ford, Dodge, or GM

lame that they don't have the adapter for it.
