2000 Cavalier SL Coolant leak/spray
right, so i've got a 200 cavvy sedan, and i noticed yesterday that my coolant light came on. i didn't think anything of it, just filled the reservoir when i got home and left it as is. well, it came on again on the way to work this morning, and when i parked i could see it dripping rapidly from behind the passenger side tire. the radiator is fine, the water pump is fine. i noticed, though, that coolant had splashed all over the place in the area around the belt, and that the belt had started to wear through. it seems as though coolant is getting onto the drive belt and getting thrown around everywhere on that side of the engine.
what it looks like is, there's a metal tube that runs across the front of the engine, and most of the hoses connect to it. well the tube itself (i don't know what the hell it's called, so if someone could enlighten me i would appreciate it) is rusted in spots and may have gotten a pinhole or two in it. as the coolant hits the pinhole, it sprays out onto the belt and gets flung every which way.
anyone experience this before? i'm trying to identify this tube so i can find a replacement for it.
