Hey folks,

I noticed some light green liquid leaking from our engine area and was wondering if anyone could tell me what it is. It's been dripping in the garage for about the past week. It seems to be centered around the middle front part of the engine.

Thanks for any insights you may have.

Coolant. Does it smells sweet? Then it's coolant, there's a drain plug in the middle of the block along the bottom, see if it's leaking from that, there could be a bad gasket in it. Or it could be leaking from one of the hoses and dripping down the block,

It's more likely the coolant is leaking from an old hose, make sure you inspect them.

Thanks!
