Help in Estes Park Co, Engine Coolant loss, Where to take for repair?
On the way back into Estes Park from Boulder, the engine started making noise that kinda sounds like fan blowing/moving a lot of air/heavy humming sound. Only when accelerating. That happened about 10 mins before shutting it down when parking for the evening. Upon doing that, I smelled antifreeze. Looked under the hood, and the passenger side is wet more than the driver. I have looked around some with a flash light. See wetness, nothing obvious for a source. I am not sure if it is making an abnormal noise when in park/idle. I did not want to start it back up with it hot. It does not seem abnormally hot. Hopefully, not enough coolant was lost to destroy the engine. I figure when the sun comes up I will get a better look and crawl under it. From what I can see, hoses seems to be good. So????
Anyone know of a good place to take this thing to in Estes Park? Or Nearby? I have looked a little, and seems most diesel places are back down the mountain.
