Re: [DML] Coolant Leak

There's no coolant flow down there, so it's probably leaking from the weep hole on the water pump or a surrounding area.  It might be time for a new pump.  Look under the water pump behind the pulley to confirm.

Subject: [DML] Coolant Leak

Hello group,
This is great timing for my car to start leaking coolant... I found where it
looks like it's coming from, it's hard to tell exactly though.  I checked my
coolant level and it was a bit low, nothing dangerous, but I refilled it and
the drip intensified for a few minutes and then slowed down again.  It drips
steadily (slowly) from the 13mm screw on the "timing chains" page of the
manual.  Part #24 (102761).  It's the lower (one on the right) bolt of the
two.  I'm going off Houston's website, (I'm at work, so I don't have the
manuals with me.  I tried
tightening the bolt, but it was tight already.

Any help would be appreciated, I'd like to be able to drive it to a hot
location without worrying about overheating or my cooling system in
