Slight coolant from driver's fender well

Recommended Posts

I stopped the car and noticed about a cup of fluid leaking from behind the front driver's side fender well. It actually was dribbling out from the front of my side skirt. It looked and smelled like coolant, but I'm not 100% certain it was coolant - more like 90%. Also, the coolant tank is still on max.

I've driven almost 100 miles since I saw the puddle, but haven't seen any other leaks.

Any thoughts on this?

Where you are pointing to could be a leak in the windshield washer tank and/or headlight washers (if you have them).

Both tanks are located there behind the wheel well liner (high in the fender).

Mine leaks from that same place, when I refill the washer fluid. Did you add washer fluid lately?

Roger, thanks. BTW, it only leaked when the car was on a negative incline (front about 10 degrees higher than rear).

I'll put some water in the fluid reservoir today and see if it leaks.

I'll post findings for the next lucky winner ;)

Hey fellow Texan, I was having leaks from there after I worked on the inner fender panel. Turns out I disconnected the feed line from the washer tank to the spray nozzles. I only realized this when I turned on the windshield washers and saw fluid running out where your pointing at. So may not necessarily be a leaky tank. Try turning on your windshield washers (if disconnected shouldn't get any spray on the windshield).
