I've noticed a small coolant stain under my 2002 SVT and a corresponding drop in the reservoir tank. Nothing drastic, no overheating, but I don't want to let it go. Is it possible that this is an overflow? Or is this a sealed system? The stain is on the right side of the vehicle as you are sitting in the driver seat, the left or front side of the engine as u look at the engine. Any TSB on coolant leak? Water pump gasket? Any tips are appreciated.

Thanx

First, check the weep hole. IF there's a leak there you need a new pump. Next, check the gasket area. Also, when coolant dries, it forms this white crusty stuff, so you might be able to spot the source of the leak without actually seeing it drip, by keeping an eye out for telltale coolant residue.

could be a cracked hose or connector at the overflow tank.
