Antifreeze Leak - Where is this coming from??
Last week we noticed a small leak on the ground from our 2000 Toyota
Camry. We've had it a year and a half and never had a problem. It is not
running hot, nor is there any smoke. The picture attached is of the part
that it is dripping out of, this is taken from under the car on the passenger
side of engine area. We noticed over the weekend that if you drive it
around it doesn't seem to leak, but after sitting 2-3 hours at home in the
evening it starts a steady drip again. Can anyone please help us identify
where the leak is coming from?
I'm trying to get a perspective on that picture. It's a very good image. But it seems as if it 'swells' and seals it's self at normal operating temperature. But green? Toyota uses a red antifreeze It is really the same ethylene glycol --- the green type of antifreeze that contains red dye to give it the red color. But non OAT
If somebody used green coolant it's not a disaster, but the ph must be higher that 8. must be alkaline, not acidic. Your 2000 Camry has an aluminum block and really should not have green coolant.
It looks to be the passenger side since there is a belt there. I would say your water pump is starting to leak. It's in that general area.
