    He had coolant dripping when he revved it, so it's not that he needs to clean the engine bay. I can't believe the dealership can't find it???? If they clean everything very well, and pressurize the system, they should be able to find it with a lift, and good lighting.

    Check the heater hoses behind the coolant tank. The "T" fitting is leaking on mine and dripping coolant onto the transmission.

    Coolant bottle is 30 bucks or less. Get a bottle of talcum powder. Spread it around and look for the wet-spot. My leak was the side of the radiator almost no sign of it. small as hell and the hose under the recovery tank. Replaced the hose now the smell is almost not noticeable. I will be replacing the RED soon. I want the 500.00 monster that is on here but can't build that much scratch to buy it. When I do replace my current stocker I am going to take the ends off and clean it and reseal it myself. Keep it as a spare or sell it. Let us know what you find on your system.

    The overflow bottle has a small weep hole on the back side along the fender upper lip. Check and see if it might be leaking from there. A good indicator would be coolant leaking just below the rear fender arch. Usually visible after extended idling in one place and a very prominent coolant odor.
