Wife left for work this morning came back home and said she barely made it home, so I pop the hood and noticed the coolant tank was empty. So, I put coolant in it and fluid was pouring out somewhere towards the back of engine. Couldn't see exactly where, I leaned over the front left fender toward the back of engine and could see the fluid pouring out down there.

If the coolant just pours out, then this could be a number of things but the most likely is a coolant bypass.

I am attaching info below on this, but we may need to pressure test the system to be sure.

However, if the coolant is just pouring out in a pretty large stream, then it will most likely not hold pressure and you don't need it if the coolant is pouring out.

We will want to use water and try and get a better vantage point by laying on the ground or removing some of the intake and covers to see if you can get better access.

However, there is not going to be an easy way to figure this out other than just gaining access to see where it is coming from.

Let us know what you find. Thanks
