something's leaking - help


Recommended Posts

can someone tell what this might be?  went for a short drive today and noticed a little puddle on the garage floor after i got back.  no previous staining on the floor, so it must have started while i was driving or after i got back.  stuck a piece of cardboard under the engine area to figure out if i can tell the rate of the leak.  any ideas what it might be?  Tks !!

Doesn't have a particular odor that I can tell.  Kinda slippery  - more so than when I rub some of the antifreeze between my fingers. 40,000 miles on water pump. Getting close to my annual oil change too....

My water pump went this past spring. Started out just as drips. Then over two weeks progressed to a puddle one Saturday morning. I think there's a consensus that they only last about 40k to 50k miles - some folks even changing them out preemptively. If it is coolant, don't leave drips/puddles out - it will kill or blind most animals and insects.

It is a relatively simple DIY project.  Do a search, been written up here several times.
