One or more components failed/leaking (i.e., coolant reservoir, radiator, hoses, etc.)

Cracked head

Cracked block

Failed head gasket

Have the cooling system pressure-tested, and report back here.

MOST LIKELY cause is the coolant expansion tank is cracked and is leaking. This is a very common failure on your car. A lot of times it comes from overfilling the expansion tank, then after it pressurizes, it cracks around one of the hose fittings.
