Crap I have a coolant leak.

Yesterday I got home from work and noticed a spot on the floor where the Mustang sits. So I cleaned it up and laid down a white towel. Parked the car in the same spot. Moved it this morning and had two pink spots about 2" in dia about 6 inches apart. Looks like the back of the block trans area. It's not trans fluid it's not slick. Man this sucks. Coolant leaks from the black of the engine are never good. It's going in Tuesday for a ECM flash and I guess I will bring it up.

It's the water pump. :kooky:
Not sure why it only lasted 18k but it's better than anything else I guess.

I'm assuming your dealer is fixing you up, if so it's all good.

it should be....I'm sure they will but some dealers are better than others.

all bets are off if you installed one of those "real tree" air fresheners....

Only thing that isn't factory on this car is the oil.
