When it rains....
... I stay home.
And pretty much all the rest of the time as well.
My interior lights/4x4/wipers have a mind of their own (already did a thread on that) & they still have a mind of their own. One day nothing works, next day lights & 4x4 work but no wipers, later that day, wipers work but no lights.
Today I went out to warm the truck up (local news said it was 20*, but it felt more like -20* with the wind) and I noticed a small puddle of antifreeze under the drivers side front of the truck after it ran for a few minutes. Sure enough, it was a small trickle, but only about a few ounces came out before I shut the truck off.
I went back out a few hours later to check for leaks & after running for a few minutes, there were no leaks this time.
My reservoir still had coolant at the "cold fill" level & there wasn't any leaks around the radiator cap.
I just checked my coolant a few weeks ago & the hydrometer said my coolant was good down to -20*, so I don't think the radiator froze & burst.
From what I could see (in the freezing cold) there didn't appear to be any damage to the hose & the leak seemed to be coming from the side or front of the radiator near but not on the lower hose outlet itself. There was some coolant dripping from the cross-member under the radiator as well as on that plastic shield under the radiator. I'm setting on a slight incline, so there's a good chance the leak is farther forward & just running down hill.
I'm going to try to make it to a store Monday (or any day that's not raining or snowing) & grab some radiator stop leak to put in until I can get in @ the stealership to see WTF is going on.
What would cause the radiator to leak like pee (or should I have said urine to be PC?) out of a sandal one time then not leak at all a little while later?
