Question about 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse
After the car is driven for about 20 miles & parked, it leaks antifreeze from under the under carriage. The leak is coming from around the front passenger side. It only leaks after the car is driven & parked & allowed to cool down. Any idea what could be causing this ? I had a head gasket repair done about 6 months ago. I replaced all the heater hoses, water pump, timing belt, antifreeze.
Watch for leaks and follow them after you drive i would geuss checking your thermostate housing both parts, the hoses that go to the heater core by the throttle body and the hose that goes to the throttle body, im guessing this is the turbo, if it is a non turbo it would be a hoses the waterpump or the oring that goes into the waterpipe on the front of the block, just get in there and take a good luck and remember the rules of gravity =) good luck man and if you need any parts for it let me know we got alot of these parts cars out in our yard

I would check and replace the thermostat if it is bad, recheck the connections of the heater hoses to the heater core, and if none of these are bad, the heater core is most likely gone bad. Also, depending on where the overflow canister is, and if the radiator cap has gone bad, it might be letting too much antifreeze out of the system and overfilling the overflow canister.
