    Antifreeze on the floor

    Well I checked out the T/A today and found antifreeze on the floor. So I jacked it up and got under it. I couldn't see where it was coming from and the antifreeze was not low. I do store the car from November to may. I'm wondering if it came out through the overflow?

    I would check all of your hoses for leaks and cracks, in case it leaked out of your hoses. If you haven't already that is.

    Check your hose clamps as well.

    If the leak is on the passenger side it MAYBE the heater core.

    Water pump gaskets are possible too.

    When you say floor, do you mean the floor of the car or the floor the car sits on ? If it is the latter than I would pressure check the system. If it is the passenger side of the car floor then it may be a heater core. Is you garage heated ?

    It's on the passenger side, and the garage is not heated. There are drip marks on the lower rad hose.

    I would pressure test the whole cooling system to look leaks. I would start looking for the leaks around the lower radiator hose since that is where you said you saw drip marks. How long has it been since you last replaced your radiator and waterpump hoses anyways? If it has been a while you may just want to replace them for peace of mind.

    How much coolant? little or a lot?

    A lot - freeze plugs or major leak in the system

    Everything is stock on the car (it only had 40k miles). In the last 2 months it has only dripped about 2 table spoons of fluid.

    Mileage doesn't matter here...it's 11 years old.

    Agreed. After 11 years you need to change the hoses, belts and coolant and you may want to do the heater hoses while you are at it. I good flush will help also.
