I wonder if mine was ever recalled? Do you know what month?

dexcool is UV reactive. so if you determine it to be coolant it will help you trace it.

Please don't overlook a power steering leak as a possibility.

John, if you wonder, have a dealer run your Vin for recall work. All 92'* and 93'* were affected.

sorry for the low quality i took it with my cam phone. See its leaking from the side and my tank is empty. I have yet to take it to the mechanic becaues of the lack of time, I had a physicsII quiz today which I badly failed.. I have been driving the van to college so the bonnie doesnt screw up.

pretty good quality for a camera phone.

Why do I have a suspicion that the coolant eblow is cracked?

Looks like you will be replacing LIM gaskets, coolant elbow, and UIM gaskets very shortly...in my opinion.
