What part of town are you?


Come out to superstition next weekend. If you are not quite ready to smash it on a rock you can just play in the dunes a little.

Closest thing for you would be pancake rock or corral canyon; neither place should be tackled alone.

Or, there are some fire roads on Mount Palomar as well as down in Otay Mesa.

Links to some info here.

New style GM radiator fluid is sometimes orange.

Maybe foamy auto trans fluid?

What does it smell like?

maybe it was a Fanta

If @ 1st you don't succeed, grind it, hammer it, weld it, drink a beer and try again.

Haha I wish. I just want it solved. I just checked the engine coolant level and it says add. So I definitely think I'm leaking coolant. What do you think the problem is?

No the coolant inside the tank is blue. I've read in some places that it could be the water pump leaking but I'm not sure. I don't really wanna take it somewhere and be charged a ton of money especially if its small and I could do it myself

never heard of blue coolant, sounds like you're looking in the washer fluid bottle

time to start sourcing your fanta... Find the magical fanta colored fluid source and you'll find your golden ticket daniel-son. Coolant is typically flourescent green and washer fluid is blue. both can overflow. oil is light to dark brown and pwr steering fluid and brake fluid is the same. Thats about all there is home-boy. Maybe they cleaned the engine bay with some kind of soap or something.... Take some pictures. As mentioned, w/o pix it isnt real.
