coolant leak

My 2001 Saab 9-5 turbo has had a coolant leak intermittently. It will leak out below the passenger side front of engine area. Had mechanic check it out, but he could not find a reason for a leak, and of course it did not leak after he drove it.
When it leaks, it is after I have driven it, even for 10 minutes.
Any ideas as to what is going on?
Thanks!
Carol.

Also, you may have seen my other post about the check engine light.

On the passenger front side, coolant can leak from a couple of places. The water pump is on that corner of the block and can be the cause of a leak. The radiator is also up front and can leak. Also any of the hoses connecting them all. But hose leaks are usually more obvious.

See if you can take a peak up from underneath

Borrow a pressure tester from your local auto parts store.

Thanks. Mechanic could not see any leak. Probably since it hadn't leaked in awhile.
