I have a 2005 Tauras. It is leaking Antifreeze making a puddle after being Driven. It has a New Water Pump, Starter, Thermastat, Power steer pump @ Alrernator. It’s not running hot while driving. No white smoke coming from tail pipe. New Reservoir cap. I make sure that it is at Full level before I leave, come back & Park, there is a Leak.

Little more detailed info would help. Which engine do you have? In which proximity of the engine compartment do you find the puddle under? Original radiator? Checked all hoses and clamps? Cracked coolant reservoir? Heater core lines running to and from firewall (they rust and develop pinholes). I'm not that familiar with the OHV engine...but, people on here report the timing chain cover behind the water pump is prone to leaking.

Mine had a pretty bad leak form on the timing cover gasket. I have read they are prone to blowout and leak over time. So might want to check around the timing cover for leakage.
