    I have a b16 with higher mileage, when I started it up this morning I noticed It was leaking coolant from somewhere between the fire wall and back of motor(did not have time to locate this morning). it was nothing major just a slow drip. however after the engine warmed up the leak seamed to stop? Is this potentially something terrible to come or just typical for a high mileage motor? I will determine where exactly the leak is later today but that all depends on if it will actually leak again. if anyone has any clue what is up let me know! thanks

    I'll bet one of your hoses has a small tear in it.

    :ditto: Check the large hoses sitting right above the oil filter. Also wouldn't hurt to check the smaller hoses coming in and out of the IACV
