leaking from almost dead center of engine. not exactly sure where. looked
at coolant sensor and i dont see it leaking but under car you can see
coolant leaking down from about directly below it.  it doesnt lose coolant

May just have to go to a garage and get it up on a hoist to see.

Hate to say it but that sounds like your head gaskets leaking that can be pretty expensive to replace some people just silicone where it's leaking out around the head and then called a day if you want to go on the cheaper fix or you can buy some chemicals to add to your coolant that would help seal it but to do it properly you need to replace the head gasket sounds like that's the problem?
