    Well, ran into my first issue with the car today. Originally the coolant was low and I wasn’t getting any heat blowing at idle. I filled it up to where it should be between the min/max lines, but over the course of a week it’s slowly leaking out somewhere and dripping down in the front right of the car. I can see from the bottom where it dripped onto but I can’t find where it’s dripping from. It’s definitely engine coolant because it’s orange, but it’s a slow leak and not spurting out. Any help is appreciated before I have to take it to a dealer or something, not sure if there’s a warranty on that or not, last owner said there was a 100k CPO warranty but I’m not sure what it would cover. Thx

    Look behind your alternator. There is a freeze plug that is the weep hole for the water pump. Do some searching in the forum for more pictures

    Did you just get your car? Hopefully you have a warranty because it sounds like your water pump is going south. The repair is pretty involved and pricey. Good luck.
