Question about 1997 Saturn SL
Antifreeze light came on for a few minutes then went off. I drove the car for additional 20 minutes turning on and off due to several stops. While sitting with engine on for 6-7 minutes gauge went up to 1/2 way. I turned car off as I was still talking - then smelled antifreeze - got out of car and found medium size puddle of fluid on the ground - far right front passengers tire area. overflow tank is 1/3 to 1/2 full of fluid still - seam on overflow tank is wet - no fluid found anywhere else. Could my tank be old 1997 saturn SL
I would check for visible cracks and leaking at the overflow tank when the engine is cold, then when the engine is running and at operating temperature and not running and at operating temperature as well as during cool down. Also check the coolant overflow hose for leaks or obstructions inside the hose or if the hose is kinked. Check to make sure that the overflow tank cap is damage free and securely fastened.
