03 Escape coolant leak

Doesn't appear to be leaking from rad or any hoses or overflow tank,it leaks right out the bottom,it started as a slow leak,had to add coolant once every 2 weeks. now it's about once a week. As the budget for this repair is $0 right now,was wondering if anybody has ever used Rislone copper block sealer or any similar products with any success.Thanks

Have you identified where the leak is? Like, is a hose leaking, or is the thermostat housing leaking?

I couldn't spot it anywhere,luckily I have a very trustworthy mechanic who found the leak and it's just a hose. Another bullet dodged.

Did he show you the hose by any chance? And did he mention any other hoses that ought to be replaced. I replace stuff like that as a set, assuming they're originals.

PS: glad you got it fixed. That was an easy one.

The only other one he noticed was a cracked pcv hose. Changing them all sounds like a good idea though, gonna do the ones I can get at myself.
