    Unhappy Coolant Leak

    I'm baaaaaaaaack!!!

    Hahahahaha, anyway I recently found out I have SEVERE coolant leak. Saw I was low the other day, bought some from WalMart and the next morning it was under the car. I raced it down to a small sliver cap-like thing on what looks to be a pump on the right-side (facing the rear) of the engine. Anyone else have this problem, and "quick" fixes? Or is it back to the dealer, because the lack of warranty makes DIY more attractive. Thanks.

    Well I replaced my two o-rings today, and the CEL came on after i started it up again. I am curious cuz I did have to unhook one sensor (temp sensor), but I don't see why it would be acting up. It seems like the car is running on the limp mode, but I am not sure. I drained all of the coolant and then refilled it afterwards with 50anti/50water ?

    Any ideas? I have unhooked my battery in hopes of resetting the ECU, but I am not sure what else might help if that doesn't.
