Re: Coolant leak
If its clear, does it have an odor to it? If it doesn't have an odor, it could be coming from the air conditioner. If it has the antifreeze odor, then it is probably leaking from the weep hole on the water pump. Although, it could be traveling down from the lower radiator hose where it connects to the radiator. If you have the Extended life coolant, then yes, it should be a pale red. The standard coolant (non-elc) is green, but can turn to a rust color over time.
