Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car in right front collision, soon started leaking fluid inside passenger floorboard (not sure if from accident or rain or A/C), 2 months later low engine coolant light came on, no visible leaks outside car, A/C works - haven't tried heater, fill reservoir with coolant about every 100 or so miles,  friend overfilled last time now see small puddle on driveway.  Where to begin?  Water pump?  Radiator?  HELP!

If its not on the out side floor as you say, did you check the oil dip stick, did you check the tranny dip stick. Is the floor inside the car still wet?

Oil and other fluids fine. Friend cleared A/C drain so no more fluid inside car
