looked at it some more and the coolant looks like its leaking from the container itself...i spun the fan around and it wasnt siezed up or anything like that nor did it feel loose...im wondering if maybe one of the fan blades punctured the container with the coolant...anyone know of some good chemicals that i can run through the radiator and everything that will repair anything? thanks guys..appreciate it
