Hello, thank you for writing in.The best way to determine the cause of the leak is to locate where it is coming from. There are several cooling system components in that area including hoses and the heater core. Both components being infamous for developing leaks. You may want to start by tracing those lines and making sure they are not cracked or damaged. If they are, simply replacing the line or hose should stop the leak. If the heater core is damaged, the extent of that damage will need to be evaluated before repairs can be made. For more help locating and repairing the leak, contact our service department.
