2008 Wrangler/Minimal Leak

When the jeep is in idle and warming up...I'm getting a leak towards the front of the vehicle?? Any thoughts? It's almost a red in color, leak is more towards the driver side... Thanks

Heh Heh, almost "red" well there's a good chance it's leaking from one of the tranny cooler line "rubber" vibration ftgs, at the lower drivers side radiator--

Now if you have a manual tranny-the "almost red" leak, is probably the neighbors cat !!

I was hoping it was the neighbors cat...but not the case. It is a manual tranny, so not sure what it is.

There's a chance it's antifreeze-gained some color on it's gravity journey, past the water pump/pan/block seam-

You're gonna have to get under and look at where the leak originates from-and then trace upward !!

Good luck
