Ok I have had a SMALL SMALL coolant leak, and the guy said my sensor like on the left side of my radiator(if you were looking straight at my car)
was like loose
is this a common place for it to leak?

Not really, but its possible. Most likely its a coolant-level sensor (mine is dead as well). Dont worry, its about $16

Dont piss me off. I am running out of places to hide the bodies

actually it is a common place.. happens all the time.. there is an O-ring that is apart of that sensor... you unscrew the sensor... and replace the O-ring... should fix her up...

Good Luck,

Les

I still need to know where it's at, is it the O ring on the bottom sensor of the coolant tank or what?
