    Ok this morn i start up my truck, and let it warm up as i get my ice climbing stuff together. After about 15 min i got out to put stuff in. everything is fine. 5 min later i come back and there is coolant allover. allot. it was actualy infront of the bumper passenger side. I filled up with more coolant drove all day and havent leaked a drop sence. ?

    Why go around when you can go over?

    I'd guess it was the overflow, but mine leaked in front of the bumper when my water pump pully bearing started to go. It would drip down onto the frame and travel over to the front. It wouldn't leak untill I turned the truck off or left it idling for a long time. I'd check that as well but i'ts probably just the overflow. Might be caused by a sticking thermostat if it gets really cold up there!

    I started with nothing and I still have most of that left! - <a target="_blank" href=http://community.webshots.com/user/borregok5> Pictures</a>
