Re: [DML] Small Coolant Leak

Sounds about right to me.  What I would do is get a hold of a cooling  system 
pressure tester, pressurize the system to 15 lbs (no higher!!) and listen  
for hissing or bubbling, you should be able to find the leak.

Hi  all

I have noticed that when it falls below freezing or very near to it  my car 
drips a very small 
amount of coolant.  I thought that I had a  cracked pipe but I ran the car 
today for nearly an 
hour and then let it  sit and there where no leaks at all.

Now I have just come home from  work and there is a small puddle of coolant 
under the 
engine.  Am I  right in thinking that the cold weather is shrinking the 
piping and causing  them 
to leak slightly???  When the weather is above freezing there  are never any 

Any ideas??
