A Coolant leak under the middle of the vehicle can be caused by a leaking throttle body deicer. Coolant travels down the engine towards the rear before dripping to the ground.

MY coolant appears to be missing ?? LOL when the heater on the inside is turned onto auto it overheats ..... The a/c appears to over heat it as well ... Its only sporadic tho and not all the time ,,, I have had the rad , condenser fan , thermostat replaced about 8 mths ago and it came to a stop . and now it appears to be happening again . what do you think .. Also sounds like water swoshing under the dash at times .. Help what is the cause or causes
Throttle body leaked coolant, so I bypassed it by pulling off those little hoses and joining them together with copper tubing and hose clamps. This heater is not necessary and is overkill, 'cos even -25 F below zero won't freeze a throttle. I've driven cars and trucks in winter for 30 years and never seen a frozen throttle.
