as he said probably water pump, thermostat housing or bypass hose.


can you post a picture of where it's coming from?


does it have coolant or water in the cooling system?

Yeah if you can post a pic that would be good.

I am also going to move this to the new gen forum as well.

Make sure to run distilled water, and NOT tap water as the minerals in tap water will eventually clog the cores in the radiator. Giant Eagle, Walmart, etc. sell the big jugs of Distilled water for like a $1 each. I personally always have about 5 gallons on hand just in case. Make sure to mix the coolant with distilled too.
