Grab the props and rotate quickly it should show.
You make take some out with the grease gun that no one seems to use nowadays.

The front rad fan switch is the one you say, just in front of the starter motor and behind the pu...

If it's coolant could be water pump leaking and being lifted by the spinning of the fan belts or airflow, are you loosing coolant ?. Or could be oil from the camshaft seal or crank seal on crankshaft b...
