So I was driving on the highway today and all of a sudden I start smelling coolant. I get home, pop my hood and there is coolant splattered everywhere on the drivers side of the engine. I cannot find where its coming from because its not pooling anywhere. I then started my car and let it warm up again and couldn't see coolant coming from anywhere. Anybody have any ideas on where I should look? My hoses are good, could it be a possible cracked intake?
I just finished looking everywhere on my engine to see where the coolant could be coming from. Due to the ammount of coolant splattered on the drivers side of my engine, i can not determine where its coming from. There is a small puddle of coolant behind and another one beside the thermostat housing. Does anyone have any other ideas on what i could do in order to see where the coolant is coming from? Thanks.
With the information you given theres no way for someone to tell you were its leaking from, could literally be anything, freeze plug, intake, rad, a hose, etc etc. you need to clean the engine up fill it and run it, should be pretty apparent if its leaking that bad
My Intake Manifold is cracked aswell, leaking coolant everywhere. You should try cleaning up around the manifold and where the hoses are to see possible cracks. Around my thermostat there is a puddle of coolant sitting from the leak. How many miles are on your engine? This happened to me around 110k
