Exclamation Leaking fluid



Found this fluid under my car the other night. Thinking about taking it in today. Any ideas on what this could be? I am thinking it could be coolant but I may be wrong? I currently have 58xxx miles

I did look around and couldn't see where it was coming from. Everything seemed fine. No lose hoses. I am actually about to take it in. I'll keep the thread updated



Where the fluid was leaking from ^

im guessing its more in the front bumper... the air vents right under the radiator... if its not that.. check the hose that connect to the reservoir...

checked all of that last night. none of the hoses were leaking. I also took off my wheel well liner and looked around that way. Seen a little bit of fluid in there. My tech said he would call me as soon as he finds out where the leak is coming from
