so it was a real hot day, i was kind of "running" the motor a little harder then normal. just having some fun, listening to my new CAI.

so then, i pull up outside of my school, with a friend waiting to pickup another friend, when i smell something. it was indeed coolant.

so we get out, and im leaking it all over the ground. so i quick pop the hood, but its not like i saw a leak or anything. its like it did what it had to, then stoped. it was a decent amount though. and now my level of fluid in the tank shows just at MIN. so im thinking i need more.

two questions...
1- why would my car do this?

2- where can i get the coolant to refill it? its yellow if that helps. i guess i should go look at the manual, but i thought i'd ask first, haha.

thanks guys. oh yea, the rest of the day it was fine, just at that time it leaked from somewhere for some reason.

1- worse case- freeze plug foul
better case - drain plug on the bottom of radiator loose a hair, may have hit it installing CAI, unlikely, but possible

2 - any auto parts store, just tell them Yellow and/or what car

Keep Smilin' :D
