Got home last night and noticed something dripping from under the hood. Opened it up and found a leak on the left-side radiator tank right behind the airbox. I had been smelling something sweet under the hood for a looooong time but could never find the leak. This time the leak finally got big enough to drip.
Since the Impala is my only car, I walked down the street and picked up a Corolla rental. Its a decent parts-getter.
Ordered a new radiator and hoses from Advance Auto, going to pick them up a in a little while after work. I already bought a new a/c compressor, condenser, lines, o-rings, dryer, orifice tube, PAG 150 and refrigerant, and flushed the metal lines and evaporator.
Going to be a fun afternoon and evening ripping apart the entire cooling system and replacing it!
