Coolant seems to be coming from rear drivers corner of tub. what?

Have had a coolant leak for a while now that I haven't been able to track down. Oil is clean and after fixing the heater core I couldn't find any leaks underneath. Went outside this morning and found what looks like coolant in the snow under the rear drivers side of the tub. This is behind the tire just in front of the bumper. Why would that even be back there? any help

did you stick anti freeze in the wiper bottle? Do you have a hard top? the hose runs back there is only thing I can come up with.

nope no antifreeze in the wiper bottle. and yes the hard top is on. Sprays washer fluid as it should and I don't see any leaks around that area. I don't see any reason that it would be back but yet it is.

Probably running down the body. I just replaced a leaking water pump and while it was in the garage coolant had ran down the exhaust and driveline to the rear axle. Confused me for a while as well.

I was thinking it could have ran off from somewhere but its an on place to run off to. Its on both the body and the frame. I'll have to get out there and try to follow it back to find where it came from.

Sure it's not fresh gear oil blowing out of the rear axle breather tube?

Found out what it was... pretty stupid but at least its nothing that costs money. Went out with some friends last night. For some reason one of them left a bottle of coolant behind my back seat and its been leaking over night. Why it was there I don't know but oh well nothing I can do about it now.

At least it's an easy leak to fix.
