Engine light went on a few months ago to check coolant. Added some. Month later, light on, added more. Week later, added more. Now every other day adding coolant. NO puddles underneath car, but drips of coolant on passenger side of lower engine. What may need replacing/repair? Thanks.

    you obviously have a leak. you need a pressure test to find the leak. it may be a water pump or something else. dont wait too long as the leak is worse and will not get better. you do not want to damage your motor.

    you've got a leak, and if it goes unchecked, it can lead to something alot worse than a leak- and a headache more than adding coolant daily or weekly.. could be a number of things, a hose, waterpump, thermostat housing, a pressure check will lead the way to finding your problem..

    I had the same problem a few months ago. It turned out that the heater core needed to be replaced.
