    It could very well be a weeping water pump, which can be tough to pinpoint. How many miles are on your CTS?

    43k, OK. Best thing to do is to get it pressure tested and put some mirrrors down near the front of the engine to pinpoint the leak. Is your engine the V6?

    also, check the resevoir where you add fluid. this may be cracked. it is [plastic and often expands over time. it is in the front of the engine.
