Did your tank get overfilled?

There should be about 1" below the cap to allow for the coolant to expand. If there is too much it will empty itself out through the overflow tube onto the ground.

Also, it wouldnt hurt to bleed the system (this should be done any time the coolant drops below the bottom of the reservoir). Look for the long metal tube running across the front of the engine. There will be a pipe with a screw on top of it. With the car running loosen the screw until only coolant comes out. Once coolant comes out with no air the system is bled.

The last option is to buy some UV dye. Hose down the engine bay to remove any traces of coolant and add they dye to your coolant tank and go for a 20-30 minute drive before it gets dark. When you get back shine a black light around the engine bay and if anything glows you have found where the coolant is leaking.


As PL mentioned, it may just be condensation dripping from the a/c. If you are using it and its hot out it normally just drips the condensation on the road as you go. Once you stop and park your car the condensation will drip and puddle under your car.

Does the 'puddle' look like clear water or is it actually coolant colored?

I'm wondering if it might be the heater core. Where's it located in the GA?

Seriously? For someone who has been around the English language for as long as you say, you have a very weak grasp on the concept. I retyped, punctuated, and fixed grammar errors in your post so we can all rest our eyes a little easier.


Nope, not at all. I guess you act like a 14 year old. I didn't think there were kids on here. I'm stoked.
