I would look at the radiator. Remember when the engine is at operating temp the system has 12 to 16 PSI of pressure, so checking when running is a good idea.
The radiators have plastic end tanks and the seal between the tanks and the cores eventually leak. All cars use these plastic tanked radiators and they will last 100,000 miles and are then candidates to leak after that.
I have done a radiator in my 2001 Aero at 160,000 and my wife's 2003 Aero at 135,000 miles.
