Cooling Fluid Leaking Out During Winter Storage
I store my XLR in a storage bag with chemical bags that absorb moisture out of the bag and I also keep a trickle charger attached to the battery in my non-heated garage in Ohio from Nov 1 through May 1st. For the past 2 years, when I took the car out of the storage bag, I found a puddle of cooling fluid (12 inch diameter) in the bottom of the storage bag. When I start the car up there is no leaking anymore but I get the message that the car is low on coolant and I add more coolant. Has anyone else had an issue like this? I'm wondering if the coolant reservoir hoses don't contract when the garage gets real cold and then when the garage warms up around May 1st that the plastic hoses expand to eliminate the leak. Thanks for any feedback on this. I'm thinking about putting a garage heater in and if I do, what is the temperature you recommend keeping the thermostat at?
