Hello Dshondria. Nice to see you today! I'm sorry to hear you are having this problem. I know this can be frustrating. Please give me one moment to type out some information for you. Sit tight one minute. I'll be right back !

Automotive Expert
Thank you for holding Dshondria, The only type of fluid that would be green on your Milan would be engine coolant and this type of leak in the front is usually due to a leaking radiator or a radiator hose and in some cases, it could also be a leaking water pump. In order to pinpoint the source of the leak, you are going to need to have the cooling system pressure tested. Doing a pressure test will allow the source of the leak to be found and if in fact, this green fluid is coolant then that would also indicate that they placed the wrong coolant in your car when they did the flush. Your 2007 Milan calls for Premium Gold coolant.

Ok where can I get a pressure test done
Automotive Expert
Any automotive shop can do a cooling system pressure test but since you are saying you took it to a shop to have it flushed I would return to this shop and recheck there work to be sure they did not leave something loose and also verify that they installed the proper coolant in it when they did the flush.

My coolant in the car they put was greenI don't think it's a good idea to take it to them again
Automotive Expert
Okay then that is in fact what you seeing leak on the ground and that also indicates they added the wrong coolant if you do not wish to return to them then find a different chop and have them run the pressure test and once the leak is found and fixed have them drain the cooling system and installed the correct coolant which is HOAT fluid and it's not green, it's actually yellow and Ford calls it Premium Gold.

Ok thank you
