Help with coolant leak

I'm curious if anybody has a picture of a 1997 Avalon engine where the coolant goes through. I need to know where the coolant passes through because the coolant from my engine had started leaking drop by drop and its not right below where the coolant container. So I'm assuming its somewhere else. The leak is somewhere between the air conditioner compressor and oil filter. There was a drop hanging on the engine oil pan when I looked up from the bottom. Thanks.

There are a few hoses that move coolant around, best thing to start with is checking the hoses. Check for crack's in the hoses. If your not sure what hoses are coolant thats ok, just means you will be checking all of them which is a good thing anyway. If you cant fine anything, maybe start the engine, and look around to see if you can see anything start dripping. Just be carefull of the fans and heat. Good luck. Let us know if you find anything.

I agree with SystemofEvil. After 10+ years of use, those hoses are bound to tire out if they have never been changed. Get some shop rags 'n' such, wipe the areas down, if nothing is seen like Evil said start the engine but be aware of those moving parts and heat. By starting with the hoses the idea is to start with the easiest/cheapest fixes first before you rip into complex/expensive parts.

I had to look some parts up at a parts house anyway (just got back) the prices of the upper hose are around $15-16 and the lower around $20-21 (pending on your state/city taxes as well) and for a radiator round $160. didn't get to any other parts involved with the coolant but atleast you have a small idea of whats up.
