That will work, hose it off after you clean it with soap. Make sure you get all that coolant off. It's possible they left the drain cock open a little and that's where your fluid is coming from.

hey guys.. i was able to dump some soap and water on the bottom of the radiator wiped the bottom of the radiator as best i can dam fans in the way.. let it sit for a few hours just got back from driving it for 25 minutes with the heat on temp was at a steady 194. all gauges look fine.. pulled it into storge open the door no smell open the hood and did not smell anything.. i have a very faint smell if i stick my head in the bay but nothing like it did before i dumped the soap down there..it is only 50 degess damp and raining on and off here in ny..i have to think the soap and water clean most of it up.. i am sure there is a little more but i cant see it on the driver side.. waiting for a really hot day

Good to hear! Glad everything has worked out well for you. Cleaning the antifreeze is a lot cheaper than doing a head gasket. LOL

I wasn't trying to scare you, and if I did, that was not my intention. When you described everything, it certainly sounded suspect. I am glad everything worked out for you.

Coolant is one of those things where some people are VERY sensitive to the smell while others are not. And it takes a surprisingly small amount to smell stongly to some people. I wouldn't worry about it. that car needs a good long drive for several hours to burn off the water from the oil.
