Hello all, back again today with another issue unfortunately, doing maintenance on my vehicles and once I got to the Cruze today I noticed this wet area at the bottom/back behind the motor, i did just replace the purge valve canister a few days ago to fix issue (P0522), It hasn’t rained and the car has been sitting untouched overnight. Anyone have ideas on what it is that’s leaking coolant from around that area? Yes I’m positive it’s coolant, it’s very oily and smells sweet, also coolant has dropped somewhat in the reservoir. Won’t have time until this weekend to jack it up and get under there :/ just wanting some direction to note towards once I get to it. Cheers.

P.S No overheating issues!

I recommend pressure testing the cooling system. That will give you a definite answer.

If I were purely guessing, I would say it's one of the heater hoses above that.

You guessed right! Finally got around to finding the leak, it’s the heater inlet hose that is leaking (the top hose) I may be wrong on the name of it, BUT it’s only leaking from from the brown/beige plastic connection so hoping I can look around online and just find that connector part If not then the hose and connection together is just as fine. I’m assuming there’s a small gasket in the connection that deteriorated, If you know the part number, Please let me know! cheers!

Finally got the part I ordered, wasn’t available anywhere near by, looks very well built it’s a dayco product part #E87993…. I’m assuming the ring gasket inside is what went out.
