USE AN INSPECTION MIRROR OR A COMPACT---LOOK UNDER THE SNOUT OF THE WATER PUMP, SEE IF THE WEEP HOLE IS LEAKING

ALSO FEEL THE BOTTOM SIDE OF THE COOLANT RESERVOIR, IT MAY BE CRACKED AND LEAKING.

LOOK THE RADIATOR OVER REAL GOOD, ESPECIALLY AT THE BOTTOM FOR DAMPNESS.

HAVING THE SYSTEM PRESSURE TESTED, WOULD BE A WISE DECISION, IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO FIND IT
