OK I FINALLY figured out where my coolant is leaking, I was looking under my car and this green stuff was dripping, so I guess thats coolant? unless theirs some other green liquid I dont know about, but my coolant is green, ANYWAYS
It's like BEHIND my engine and it's leaking on my exhaust pipes, A lil before my catalytic converter I think?
It's dripping from up top, and just going down, but I didnt really find an exact spot, So this made me think? Is it possible it's going into my engine........then leaking out?
I really doubt it tho, because it's behind my engine, and plus wouldnt my engine burn it up instead of letting it leak out, Is there some hoses behind the engine that it might be leaking out of,
Sorry no pics, im gonna try to raise my car up and see what I can find :lol:
but any ideas? remember it's like in front of my cat (front being front of the car so it's forward to the cat converter) and it's behind my engine, well pretty much behind, the leak is like right below where the back of my engine it seems would go.
Sounds like it is coolant leaking from a hose. How long has it been leaking? I say it could be a hose because the coolant tank is in the front of the car and I can see no other way of a coolant leak without it being a medium, such as a hose. I don't know why it would be back there though. Check your coolant level and if you have an OBC you will be warned when it gets low.
yea but even if I had a hole in my block, which i severly doubt, it would still get burnt up the engine wouldnt it?, and I'd see white smoke, WHICH I DONT, and plus I saw it was dripping front behgind the engine
Check the coolant level first. You need to make sure that's par at all times. If it gets too low and you're on the highway you'll have a shitty day. It doesn't matter what part of your car you are or aren't using. If a hose connects it to a fluid source, no matter what that source is, you can still have leaks.
I wouldn't say it's impossible, but I would say unlikely because if it was, you'd have more side effects than just a leak. It doesn't seem like it would be the block, but you can never be too careful. Once again, check the coolant level at all times until your problem is solved.
Right, that is why I said it is unlikely to be the block. But you can never be too careful. It could be a crack or something and could get a lot worse really quickly. Check everything else first, but if you can't find any hose leakages, don't ignore the possibility of the block.
