My coolant is running right out.

Radiator and pump appear fine, don\'t see any obvious blown hoses.

Basically come out rear/right of the engine area, going down cross beam and hitting the ground below the cabin.

Perhaps a gasket of some sort my father-in-law suggested.  Any other ideas?

And can I get a good case to bad case type estimation price wise? Ugh.

Probably need to bring it in and leave it for us to look at. It could be a head gasket or a by-pass coolant hose, sometimes they are buried at the back.

Could you give me just a guess on min-max price?

Might determine if I bring it by this week, or next month lol

By-pass hose less than $200 I\'d say. Head gaskets we donot do, sorry.

3800 v-6 is probably the most reliable engine on the planet!
