Customer reply replied 3 years ago
That is the mystery.....originally from the front now it is on both sides down the middle.
Buick Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 3 years ago
The water pump is common to leak and so is the lower radiator hose. If leak is not making itself obvious you will need to put dye in system and watch car with UV light to see where leak is coming from. most pats stores will barrow out the light for free. Let me know how it goes or if you have more questions, thanks.
