Leak under passangerside rear end

Recommended Posts

I have a 2004 Boxster After a drive, I note what appears to be a leaking of fluid from the passenger side rear end. At first I thought it was from the AC, but it happens even if AC is off. I checked the Coolant level, and it doesn't seem to be down much. Also, car doesn't over heat.



My first guess would have been a problem. My BMW had a slit inaudible exhast leek, It tleeked water to. Turned out to be normal condensation driping drom the leak.

Look in the rear trunk if the underside of the carpet on the right side is wet, if yes, a good chance that the coolant tank is cracked. If the leak is situated just behind the pass. seat, check the water pump.

I have noticed a similar clear fluid leaking from the same area. The fluid feels somewhat oily to the touch, but has little smell? I have no idea what this is if you find out . please post.

WE have the same problem! I believe it is anti-freeze/water because I stuck a a small towel into coolant and the liquid seems to be the same. I do think it has something to do with overflow tank, but carpet isn't wet like everyone said it would be.

Car is under warranty, so before we put it away for the winter, I am taking to dealer

Today my coolant was thrown out partially. The coolant was cold, and looks like it was leaking at passeger side, from upper part of the engine. However, the coolant reservoir in trunk was hot! And when opening the cap, there was no pressure.

I added some coolant fluid the day before (it was below the lower limit) , and when opening the cap the was pressure.

It was about 1 litre of water which came out.

What can cause this????? A faulty cap? There was no coolant below the rear trunk carpet...

Leaky caps or cracked tanks - sorry but that is 99% of the leaks.
