No noise, I called the dealer and he said if it is redish color it may be coolent, I will be taking it to them tomorrow to drop it off so they look at it on Monday morning. They do not have high level mechanics on Saturdays. They will provide me a courtesy car.Maybe a blown Hyd. belt tensioner. Do you hear any rattle under the hood?

Good call Chip. His build date falls in the zone and hydraulic fluid could easily have that appearance.Maybe a blown Hyd. belt tensioner. Do you hear any rattle under the hood?

I am going to Chevrolet of Irvine, it is the closest one to me. Normally I take it to Selman Chevrolet in Orange but my service guy is on vacation now and next week.Steve, which dealership are you going to down there? Ask around here on the forum for recommendations if you don't already have a good idea, or a working relationship with a dealership. I know some SoCal people expressed extreme frustration with a few of the service departments down there.
I think it is the same because when I got home this evening I jacked it up and took a picture and it is right below the radiator, here is the pick i shot under the car pass anger side there is no smell to itThat's exactly what the coolant looked like on the floor when my radiator was cracked. Had an oily feel and red color.
It's a Corvette, not a Civic.Is this normal quality for American cars? I have a 2011 Toyota sienna van that my wife drives and it has never been at the dealer since new only for oil changes.
