winterset Posted July 23, 2014 Report Share Posted July 23, 2014 A few weeks ago when filling up, a slight drip of coolant was seen from the passenger side. Also a slight sweet smell. When i got home, i went to tighten the lower surge tank clamp, and the leak got worse. It seemes the hose extension on the tank had developed a hairline crack. I ordered a new GM tank from amazon for ~$74 free shipping. Took about an hour, test drive went well. I will be draining and refillng my 3 year old coolant within the next. Few weeks. I'll keep an eye out for sales on dexcool. I had new tires, and a tankfull of premium, but i couldn' drive it! All is well again. Since replacing the trans fluid with Dexron VI a few months ago, i notice smoother quieter shifts too. This car runs like new now.
