looks like im leaking a bit of coolant somewhere. is there any common place they leak from? i couldnt really see much. some residue on the bottom side of the car. looks to be down about a quart in 2 weeks.
well it used to drip near the front passenger wheel- old condo parking lot. i thought it was just oil though. however, it looks like it was probably coolant.
the main radiator hoses looked ok. the engine bay is so cramped in this car that im not even sure where all the coolant hoses run to. im guessing its somewhere right around the resevoir or atleast near it.
i was gonna change my valve cover gaskets last night, till i realized what an undertaking it was. maybe ill do it this weekend and see if i can spot the leak then.
well it keeps leaking out the overflow resevoir almost instantly. it never overheats though. makes me think its a hose at the bottom of the resevoir and nothing something major. thoughts? if it were leaking frorm the water pump it would leak out pretty quickly and overheat. if its just the overflow, then its keeping coolant within the engine somehow.
225 for parts, so about 80 dollars an hour labor (said 5 hours)
he said he was the pump that was leaking. i hope it was. with 209K miles on the clock i figured it was better to change those things anyways since I dont know when they were done last. guess ill see how she holds up. I bought some valve cover gaskets I need to get around to changing when i get some time.
