Hi guys, new here. Just bought an 08 2.4 Sol with 61k miles used from a dealer. It's day 3 and the first issue pops up. I drive on my lunch break to get food and head back to work. (Im waiting a bit in the drive through for my food, 15 mins in 95F temps?) Go back to work and park it. 40 mins later a buddy comes up and tells me my car is leaking. Sure enough I go out and a huge puddle of coolant is leaking. I couldn't determine the source but I leave it until I'm off, then come back out 3 hours later and start it up. Low coolant light is on and I'm watching temps. I decide to drive home any way and on my 30 miles home temps didn't pass 207F. I just added more dexcool and it seems okay- what do you guys think? Is this the infamous water pump issue I keep reading about? I LOVE the car but should I try to fight the dealer to return it? I was super excited but now slightly discouraged, I don't have a shop for any big work. Any advice is welcome, thanks!
