Coolant leak...
Hey guys. 05 lgt.

I have a small coolant leak under the hood somewhere. It ends up on the exhaust making awesome coolant smells enter the car from time to time. No visible leaks or puddles. I remember reading something about a small leak near the turbo maybe? A hose clamp if I recall? Just hoping for some advice on hunting this pain in the ass leak down! Thanks for the time and space!

Remove that useless engine cover, then look around the turbo. You should see the rubber hose leaking that feeds the turbo.

FWIW, both my cars have the engine cover removed.

Fair enough! Thanks! Didn't think it would be that easy to track down. I'll update what I find!

Max is probably right.. Ive seen quite a few leak from the top coolant hose to turbo.. sometimes its just weak clamp, other times swollen and brittle hose..
