    I have coolant coming down the pass. side of my engine. Seems to drip from the starter. But there is signs that its coming down the side of the engine onto the oil pan also. Only spot it drips from is around the starter. I cant tell anything from under the hood. Im thinking maybe a freeze plug but the spot on the side of the engine is kind of wide. I have no clue where to look.

    look at the left side of your intake manifold and check real good. do any work on it recently? might need to redo your intake manifold gaskets.

    Only work done in that area is valve covers, and that was over a month ago.

    Check your hose and your water pump also. I've had it drip from the starter before to find out my hose was leaking and the fan was blowing it back making it look like it was coming from somewhere else.

    I only notice where the leak is comin from is when its parked and i have to look right above it to figure wheres its from. No signs really. I dunno what to think. Maybe freeze plug?
