Default Coolant leak

Hey I have a slight leak I can visually see where it is but I don't know what part it is and I won't lie I don't know a ton about cars. But I would rather fix it myself if I can get someone to identify the part I need to replace or how to fix it

Your coolant is leaking on the forum making it difficult to use the forum?

You posted in the wrong section. This is for problems using the forum - i.e. logging in etc.

I asked one of the mods for this section to move it - but you didn't list the year or if you are a V6 or V8 so he can get it to the correct section.

Most likely it is the thermostat housing then - very common failure. The plastic splits and you lose coolant; quite often mistaken for a water pump leak because of how the coolant runs down.

Lot of information about it in the S197 V6 section

Thermostat housing or water pump. Thermostat housing is prone to leaking. Its made of cheap "thermal plastic". Terrible design. Wheres the leak?
