    Default coolant leak coming from fording hole

    Well, don't really know what to make of this...

    I suddenly have a small amount of coolant that has appeared on the ground and looks like it came from the fording hole.

    I can see drips of coolant from the hole.

    Any ideas?

    I really hope my first MV hasn't turned into a nightmare...

    thanks all

    When this happened to me It was coming from one of the two small hoses on the water manifold leaking due to dot and running down the back side of engine. By the time I noticed it had dried on block so for a minute or two I couldn't figure out where it was coming from.

    I agree with Slate and would suspect a leak much higher up and the coolant simply dripping from the lowest point where it collects.

    Just wasn't sure if there was something in the clutch housing/back of block that would rear its ugly face.

    Pretty much like house plumbing... if there's a puddle in the basement, start at the top floor, lol.
