Your pro says 1996 RS so I'm gonna go off that. Is the coolant coming right out of the throttle body or just slightly below it? I think there is a plastic tube that runs around there. Maybe a bypass or something that tends to crack n stuff with age.

The TB does have a coolant run through spot, I would definitely try changing the TB gasket first.

Yeah everybody is correct that is the only way coolant could be flowing out of the TB. other wise your entire intake would have to fill with coolant and spill out.

RockAuto has the gasket for you for $1.20+s&h. Compared to spending 10-15 Id guess.
