why is antifreeze dripping from my intake grate?
May be a dumb question but I have to ask. I winterized my 06 RXP on Sunday. I ran antifreeze throught the IC and exhaust. About 2 days later there is a small puddle under my ski right below the intake grate. Is this normal? There is nothing comming out of my rear exhaust so I don't know how it's dripping.

Check the top bolts on the ride plate. I bet one is leaking from the cooler weather. Silicone shrinks up in cold temps, then leaks.

do you have to pull ride plate to fix that.

Ive had that happen befor. After i winterize i leave a bucket under the ski for a couple days.

No. Just drain fluid, remove bolts, reinstall with new silicone.
Just look with light on top of plate. You will see antifreeze if leaking.

I know my plate isn't leaking. Isn't my IC and exhaust cooling separate from the coolant lines anyway?

sounds like you have a leak in your rideplate.

You are right Ocman. I'm more curious of why or how it can drip out when I thought it was a close line that came in the back of my hull to my IC and then out my exhaust.
