There's no question you need to drop the lower and take a look, but that part you already knew. As you were thinking, that's a lot of water to be leaking out there. There's no way the bolts loosened up that far, that quickly. I always use some type of grease (multiple types of engines) and have never had the bolts back out. Not saying it couldn't happen, but it's very unlikely to happen over the course of a few years - zero chance it would happen in the short time you had it there.

Could be an issue with the housing - possibly even the water tube. Most likely, you'll be able to figure it out easily enough once you drop it.
