    Anyone experienced a coolant leak? The dealer said they had replaced a couple of water pumps that were leaking. In the meantime I'm out one Hellcat.

    DD...keep us in the loop please. Could you see where it was coming from or did you just go to the dealer and let them mess with it?

    my leak wasnt showing up on the ground...minor....where water pump went into the radiator( i think)

    i still smell a slight sweet smell sometimes....comes and goes....

    The dealer could not get to it until Monday. Not taking any chances so I left it with them.

    Better get it checked. You got a leak. Make sure they pressure check the system.

    But you still needed a radiator?
