I've got a SEVERE coolant leak going on. I'm talking a puddle of coolant under the old truck.I replaced my water pump, thermostat, radiator hose, and intake manifold gaskets all within the past 2 years, and haven't noticed any leak there. I did, however, notice that the coolant had a red tint to it when the leak first started (rusty colored red, not tranny fluid red), and I simply wanted to see if you thought it could be the result of a rusted out radiator? The radiator hasn't been replaced since the day she was built. Thanks for your help!

Yes it could be, also since its never been flushed theres lots of dirt and other gunk in there that comes out when that happens. You sure the radiator is leaking and not a blown out freeze plug?

Well I just looked at it, and its definitely not the radiator. Its further back, but I haven't quite found it yet. I'll check the freeze plugs though. Thanks for the tip!
