The heater core hoses seem to be further to the right, and seem to be dry. Firewall also appears to be dry. Before I noticed the coolant leak, when I started the vehicle, the temp gauge would stay on cold, then would move toward warmer, but would get no heat from heater. Then temp gauge would rise rapidly, would have heat, then drop to normal or sub-normal, then back up. I could see no coolant leaking but could smell coolant and see some steam. Then the next day, I noticed the same symptoms, so I pulled off of the road when the gauge showed hot, and coolant was pouring out underneath.
