Are you sure it's coolant? Or is it just condensation dripping off A/C lines? Check the drips, if they're green then worry. If they're just water, most likely no worries. Also check your coolant reseviour. If it's not going down, it's not leaking.

Take it too the dealer if under warranty and they can do a pressure check to see if its leaking and where also check your hoses for loose clamps.

I believe I saw the marks for it on the driver's side of the block. The block is small so basically if you're looking at it, it will be just to the right of center, maybe 6-7".

If it is minor it may be overlflow, durring the heat. If not let it idle and lay down next to it and watch it. Check your hoses it may be minor and just dripping down the engine block. This will be verified by a stong syupy/carmel smell around the car after it has been run for a while. And check your radiator fluid level as well as the resovior level. If it is minor enough I have heard of people dumping that copper stuff in the radiator and it plugs the hole. But I wuld be leary of using it. But to be honest I have never heard bad things about it...

My waterpump **** on me a month ago and left me on the side of the road for a hour at 7AM. I was left with a huge repair bill and it overheated reallllll bad. I am afraid that I damaged the block and it will bite me in the ass down the line...most likley blow a head gasget or something. I was driving for about 5 minutes before I noticed that the cloud of dust behind me wasnt actually dust It literally hit overnight. The day before, "Mom, my car is making a fully sound." Mom: "Its nothing, youre just worrying about nothing."

NExt morning: "Mom, Dad, My car is on a Flatbed and I just got off the thruway...where do you want it towed to?"

And yes, it is located behind the timing belt cover.

WRXwannabe, I take it you haven't worked on many cars. The subaru WP's are a snap to get to/work on compared to most cars.

My SHO is about 8 million times worse. Not only is it behind the timing belt, but it takes longer to get the timing belt covers off than it does to SWAP a WP on a EA-82.

Most 4cyl cars that the Impreza/legacy competes with are also worse.

No Problem...because I overheated and lost a lot of coolant, it took them $360 of my own money for them to actually figure out what happened. Then it was time to start fixing...mmmmm.....When all was said and done, it ran me about $700. They replaced the timing belts, cam seals, waterpump, thermostat, coolant, towing, and a few other o-rings here and there. It had 58,218 miles when it happened, and I filed a warrantly claim with SOA because of the recomendation for me to do so when I called them. It is a 95 and it is over the 5 year (60 month) powertrain warranty, but it had under 60K which was remarkable according to the customer service guy. Im going to call one of these days to see how its coming along. Good luck, and its the labor that will kill your wallet!
Kevin

**update** They called this morning and are paying half of the bill
