1998 ford escort and there's coolant that is found under the front of the car after it has not been running for a while what could this be from?
Climb under the vehicle and try to find out where it's leaking from. Look closely at the water pump and try to see if there is a trace of antifreeze from the water pump pulley. If that's it, replace the water pump. If that's not it, you may find that it's as simple as a leaky radiator or radiator hose.
