    Default Small coolant leak

    My 3.2 has a small coolant leak. I can smell hot coolant when the car has been running and it loses a small amount of water, but I can't easily see where it's coming from.

    is it likely to be a hose that needs tightening a bit more?

    thanks

    Could be anything Mike you really should try and find the leak before it becomes an expensive leak!

    Check the obvious things first. It will most likely either be the radiator where the metal is crimped at the outer plastic edges, the coolant hoses or connections, or the seam in the middle of the expansion tank.
