judging by that pic, it's either a hose above there or the radiator itself

Default RE: *2nd UPDATE/ PICS / loosing coolant

man i had the same exact thing happen to me with a 99 monte carlo my wife got new, it had like 39,000 miles on it. dont know where the coolant was going, come to find out it was leaking from the back of the intake manifold gasket and either burning up or blowing on everything else behind and under the motor but was not visibly leaking on the ground or anywhere else!

I check the level of water and by GOD its almost all gone , i had just filled it up ONE DAY ago , so i refill it up with like 4 cups of water. in one day whats causeing it to loose so much coolant. Somone suggested its the INtake Manifold and my car is gonna die soon [&:]

that rust goes half way up the radiator and only on that side so i think its leaking from under the plastic harness and dripping down.

It's the radiator.... Mine was leaking from that exact side, but I was unable to pinpoint exactly where it was coming from... All I knew was that it was dripping down and looked like it could have been dripping out of the bottom of the radiator... Replace it and I bet you'll solve your problem.
