    Leaking coolant. Oil cooler looks clean but the oil pan underneath has drips of clean coolant all around that side. Car runs fine but after my cruise on Saturday it spilled about 8 ounces of coolant in the garage over night.

    Here is the oil cooler and surrounding area

    Let me know what you think.

    Thank you! I was trying to order it today but the owner brought up the water pump. I told him i looked at it but he said look closer just in case. So tonight I did and sure enough its the water pump. Shout out to speed concepts for being awesome human beings and turning down a little bit of cash to help me out, and thank you DKblue98GT for the referral!

    You are welcome! Speed concepts was super helpful when my oil cooler dumped oil all over my driveway.
