I'm not a mechanic, but green is usually antifreeze, is it coming out in the front of the vehicle?

It means you have a antifreeze leak and it could be very serious. Anywhere from a cracked block or bad head gasket to something as little as a thermostat. But it is something that needs immediate attention. You could run it out of antifreeze (water) and ruin the whole engine.

Antifreeze is leaking. This is something to take seriously. For right now you can just keep the radiator and reservoir full (coolant from the dealer is expensive but the safest choice, and you only need a gallon) by checking often enough that you never add more than a cup or so at a time. But you need to get this identified (cheap enough) and fixed (may be cheap or expensive) soon. I see more cars die from cooling system failures than from any other cause.

It means you have a leak.. and very likely Antifreeze. Check it out, could be a lose hose, a hose going bad, or a hole in the radiator/system. But do not put sawdust in it unless you in no way care about the car. If "Chris S" is a certified AMECPA mechanic he is a poor one in telling you to do such a thing and them make the comment, "shouldn't hurt anything."
