    Engine Coolant Leak....

    I have noticed a clear pink fluid leak under my car and realized it is the coolant. It is a small leak, but obviously will get it checked tomorrow.

    Anyone have any feedback as to what I can expect from the mechanic tommorrow as far as what is leaking, why, costs?

    I appreciate any one who knows about this coolant leak issue. I am frustrated since the car has such low milegae, but I guess it can happen.

    The fluid in the radiator is completely full after checking it.

    The reservoir tank is at Full/Cold even though it was a warm engine. Does that give any info?

    Could be leaking from anywhere...small hole in the radiator, loose/worn hose, water pump, etc. Kind of hard to advise without seeing it.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    what part of the engine does the leak accumulate under? Does it leak when cold? After you've driven and it's warmed up? Do you throw codes or show increase in temp?

    i thought coolant was green...pink sounds like power steering

    It just was noticed today so Im unsure how long the leak was for. My coolant is orange/redish and it is still full when I opened the cap, however the reservoir tank was slightly low.

    The leak on the floor was on the front/right area. No codes or lights are on.
