Engine Cooling problem
1996 Geo Metro Two Wheel Drive Manual 140K miles

3 cyl. 5-speed engine. Sometimes leaking clear coolant at bottom of engine block/top of oil pan. No indication of coolant in oil when changing oil. Can there be a leak in the cooling jacket that would not mix with the oil? Can I fix it?

Best bet is to have a pressure test done, this will pin point the problem. Coolant is normally green, or orange for GM Dex-Cool? You say your liquid is clear?

Sorry for the confusion. I meant clear green - as in not mixed with any oil. Had water pump replaced today, so we'll see where we go from here.
Thanks!
