I started it and watched and the coolant is dripping off of the lower radiator hose. It looks like it might have a split in it, but I can't tell for sure (I let it idle until it dripped and then stuck my phone in there so I could see and took pics). I'm wondering if it's opening up under pressure and then pulling closed as it cools and allowing the radiator to pull fluid back in as it cools. It's an odd one and I'll have to get the hose off and give it a better look.

More to come.

That, or it's just started and either not enough has leaked to make a visible difference yet, or the air that's replacing the coolant is occupying another spot in the system, making the fluid level look full.

I bought a new lower hose today and some antifreeze. Now I just have to get out to the garage and tear it apart so I can see what we have going on.
