Leaking Antifreeze?

966 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  MattJensen
Last week I ran into something and did some damage to my front bumper cover. Now it seems on occasion, I have what may be antifreeze leaking. Every once and a while I will see a little red stream of fluid. Not sure this is antifreeze or other(from AC?)? I really need to get under the front end to see what is going on just no time to this point and car not over heating. The leak is bothering me more than to the damage to the car. Hopefully tomorrow will have time.

Red fluid? Is your car an auto or a manual? It could be automatic transmission fluid, if it’s not coolant.

I got a 6 M
Okay, stock fluid isn’t red with the manuals so it can’t be trans fluid. What color is the coolant in the expansion tank? If it’s red I’d say there’s a good chance that it’s just coolant. My Cruze just went in to get a new water pump because mine was leaking. I had the same issue, the car would sit for a few days then I’d notice a few drops of coolant under it.
