2005 Outback 2.5i - 5 speed - 191K
I have not posted for several weeks because all of my repairs have been working. I guess that is a good thing. I am in Philadelphia where the weather has recently been extremely cold. I often spend my entire day in my car and with the cold weather I have left it running for hours on end. I have not experienced any issues because of this. Yesterday I went to check all of my fluids and found that the radiator had lost fluid. I do not know the cause. There do not appear to be any leaks on or around the engine. Today I noticed while parked for over an hour with the engine running that the driver side Muffler had a steady drip of fluid. I also noticed where the driver and passenger side Mufflers split a steady drip of fluid existed too. I have known that a hole exists where the two Mufflers split off but have not purchased a new center section. The fluid coming out of the muffler does not appear to be radiator fluid. I also know that Vehicles will often have water drain from the muffler immediately after the car starts until after it warms up. When I noticed this today the car had been running for approximately 5 hours. Does anybody have any association of this fluid and the possible loss of fluid from the radiator? The radiator itself is brand new. The hoses on the radiator are also brand new.
