I said it months ago. Car is stock. Check your radiators. Make sure they dont look like this. This isnt run off from me putting fluid or anything like that. Its seaping from endtanks

Lame. How many miles on yours? Also, have you observed coolant loss to cause you to investigate or did you just see this on a whim?

This is actually a typical failure with radiators in use today. The aluminum cores and plastic tanks and a gasket between the two. Sometimes you can take the radiator into a radiator shop and they can pinch down the crimps a bit to stop the leak. Sometimes not. Always something to keep an eye on for sure. B.

Just discovered a small leak on bottom of my 2017 radiator. Did you find a solution for this? (I currently only have 8776 miles on the clock)

The Denso looks cheap enough to give a shot. The Cold Case is about $425 when the AC Delco unit from Rock Auto is about the same price after Shipping. I think Ill see if I can get a warranty replacement then maybe try the Denso purely for cost reasons.

I ended up calling GM and voicing my opinion/complaint. Because the mileage was so low and the warranty had only just expired, they didnt question anything and asked me to bring it to a dealer for evaluation. The dealer took a quick look and contacted GM. The repair, which would have cost over $700 under normal circumstances, only cost me $200 after GM's involvement.

Couldnt have been faster or easier.

Just take the skid plate off and im sure you can see. Or look at the skid plate from above with a flashlight and you can probably see pooling.
