    Coolant leaking

    I have seen reference to coolant leaks on these threads before, but I have been unable to find them. If someone can point me in the correct direction it will be of great help.
    I have a 2003 95 AREO. It started leaking coolant a couple of days ago.
    Location of coolant leak is rear of engine near where the heater lines go through the firewall to the heater, Exact location I am NOT sure.

    Have read threads on 93's that involves the heater switching or valve. My leak appears to be between engine and firewall. I understand, appearances are not always as they seem.

    Help will be greatly appreciated.

    Very typical leak from the Coolant Bypass Valve on the firewall. You need to repost this in the 9 5 section if you want further info. Lots of info here on the repair or the alternate procedure to get rid of the valve altogether.
