LEAK DETECTED

2001 Ford Taurus • 180,000 miles

A friend of mine had a leak today I looked underneath the car and noticed there was a leak after he crankd the car it was a small current of coolant dripping off the front splashgaurd I checked both radiator hoses and thermostat housing there was coolant collecting at the bottom insulation of the radiator so I deemed it a radiator leak he said it also smokes its a very slow leak though.
