When it rains, it pours

Check the multifunction temperature sensor that is mounted above the drivers
side motor mount. The sensor is mounted to the underside of the coolant pipe
that is located just under the intake manifold.  This is a common part to
leak and is mounted right above the motor mount.

Good Luck,

So, the 200 is just not letting me enjoy the winter.  First the wheel
Fine, replace it and the hub driving on a shot wheel bearing took out.
While it
was in the shop, have them do the timing belt/water pump/belts/etc..  I
that car is in the shop anyway, it is winter, i don't really want to do it
it's freezing out, etc..

 All seems well, then I get the car home and discover that the top radiator
is broken!  Arrgh.  I do a temp job on to with JBWeld and the shop orders me
repair kit.

Now, I'm seeing a coolant leak from somewhere in the front of the engine. At
first I thought it was from my repair of the radiator neck but that is dry.
can see coolant collected on the motor- mount, under the aux water pump, but
is not leaking, nor are any of the hoses I can see.  It is a steady leak,
not major.  I have not yet been able to identify the source, and will look
more closely this weekend, even if the temps aren't supposed to get out of
teens!  I was just hoping I could get some pointers to know weak spots on
cars after 160K miles.
