For a short period of time I have notice some coolant leaking from under my car. Checked the level in the reservoir. Was low added some brought level back to normal. However leak continued to where I can see more coming out on a trickling effect that appeared to be in the middle of the engine. I crawled under car and looked up. Visually tried to locate leak when car was running and couldn't see any holes or spray. But it appeared it was above where I couldn't quite see from my position. So I kept water in the car in the reservoir. I kept the cap loose as to not allow too much loss of fluid from pressure. But For over a couple weeks now the fluid loss is more. I have driven anywhere from a few blocks or more. Oddly though I drove 10miles and the reservoir was full and the temperature gauge was normally in the middle. But I can actually put in more than a gallon at a time so this is not looking good. Any ideas.
now that my heater is only lightly showing warm air this is alarming. Thermostat. Water pump who knows. But the leak I am worried about. Soft plug>? Please help me here
Currently I added water and then my red icon light came on along with my gauge rising up to the 3/4 mark. Then there was a loss of heat from my heater and then it heated up. Then there was a small tapping plastic type noise around the motor area. Not sure what that was but probably figured air or water bubbling or something. I am out of work and this doesnt help any.
