    Help.. Coolant leaking from pump tunnel

    Hey guys, i was just out messing with my ski and noticed it is dripping coolant on the concrete from around the intake grate/pump tunnel. Any clue as to where it might be coming from? there is a little bit of coolant sitting in the bottom of the hull but it's minimal and a few drops in the overflow tube.

    Thanks

    I haven't ridden it since september and it's been in storage all winter and just now today started leaking.

    Just went back out and took the intake grate off to get a better look and took some pictures. I also filled the bottom of the hull with about an inch of water. I have water coming through the hull out of the front bolt hole for the grate. But coolant is coming from somewhere else too right above it. And a little coolant on the front of the ride plate.

    Did you have it winterised?

    yepp, made sure the coolant was good and, i pulled the intercooler and exhaust out because they are getting replaced this spring anyway.

    Ski is basically stock right now, so it still has the closed loop cooling.

    Did you put antifreeze in the rest of the exhaust and intercooler lines to keep them from freezing?

    My bet is that the coolant you see is coming out of your jet pump and is from winterizing if your coolant level in the bottle is good.
