Hi..there...

If its a substantial leak thats developed..then in my opinion it wouldnt be wise to drive it to be honest..or you could risk overheating the engine and cause unnessesary damage...obviously it will have to be case of filling the system and trying to locate the exact area in which the coolant/water is leaking from..whetherthatbe from split coolant hose,failed clamp, radiator issue, or the expansion tank itself..have seen a few crack before and cause leaks..might want to check that..or the water pump/thermostat gasket has failed...
