Hit an...animal. Coolant leak. Tank?
I hit some animal this evening. It was quite dark, dark colored animal. I didn't even see it coming. No bigger than the bottom of the headlight. All it really damaged was the front valance along with SOME TANK, underneath the driver side headlight. It leaked coolant. All of it. So I know it couldn't be the reserve. (Could it?)
It's some sort of tank. Nothing too special. It leaks only coolant but it leaks every drop of coolant that the car had in it. Just at an idle the car would begin to overheat.
Could use some help on figuring out what this "tank" does, how much a replacement part would be, maybe some "How-To" instructions on how to replace it. And if you would be so kind as to possibly shoot me a link where I could get one online or a part number, if one can't be obtained here at some dealership.
Pics will follow hopefully within the next few days to help me explain this part a little more.
