Default PT Hellllp!!!!

I was driving home last night, and I noticed the temp sensor was fluctuating from the halfway mark, where it has always stayed since new, and the 3/4 mark. When home, I opened the hood, and there is coolant all over the place, mostly near the battery area. Any ideas? The hose does not appear to be leaking.

You might have a pin-hole near the top of the radiator or the top hose. If you can get it to a shop that has a pressure tester, that will show you where the coolant is coming from. They just screw it on whee the radiator cap is and add pressure. Any pin-hole or leak will show itself.

Check your radiator. It's common that they leak where the plastic meets aluminum. Get it fixed immediately before it overheats and causes more problems.
