Anti-freeze in the snow

Went to Wawa last night & when I came out there was a puddle of anti-freeze under my truck. I went home & looked for the leak but could not isolate it. The drips are falling to the right of the front diff on the axle. Since I don't have a garage & it is dark by the time I get home any suggestions before I start removing pieces is appreciated.

First off what is Wawa? I would check all the hoses to make sure they are tight. I have to work in the dark allot also so I bought one of those 1000 Watt work lamps at Home Depot for $20. not only is it really bright but it works as a good hand warmer. They also sell stuff that you can add to the system that glows under black lights.

I suggest you go get a stromboli. I miss those.

Sorry, but I don't know how to fix your car. I had a leak in the bottom right hand corner of my radiator a while ago. It would actually squirt out of the front sometimes but was more towards the steering damper when dripping down. Just keep a close eye on the coolant level until you find the leak. Mine just stopped somehow. Hopefully, that will happen.

Peter,
The same thing happened to me. I tightened all the hose connections and it solved the problem.

Check the front of the intake by the dizzy, the connections under the overflow tank, and the hoses.

lol.... Mike, Wawa is like a 7-11. The chain actually only goes as far north as southern NJ that I have ever seen. None up in northern NJ but on every corner down the shore. Oh, and as for the leak, check your water pump connections and behind the pulley.

Philip, yes. When I saw Wawa I thought I was missing something or maybe someone else was missing something.
