    I got in my car this morning pulled out of the garage and noticed my LOW COOLENT light was on. "WTF" So i go look in my garage and notice a small puddle (smaller then the size of the palm of your hand, so not a lot) on the ground. It was nice green coolent so its deff not from the overfill I dont think.

    I topped it up with a bit of water so I could get on my way and looked from the engine bay but couldnt see any sign of where its comming from. There is no white smoke so im sure its not a head gasket.

    Any ideas?

    Checked your hoses matt? Near the radiator, they could have a small crack or hole when the car is under load or running for it to drip.

    I would check underneath the water pump. just feel around is see maybe if your water pump gasket might be leaking.
