Clear slick liquid coming out of truck.

I've got a clear but slick liquid that is leaking in front of my truck. Its almost like a clear KY, really no cent to it or color either. Its even with the inside of my drivers tire but up by the front bumper.

Haven't checked the color always assumed it would be green. I've only owned the truck about a month now.

It may be green. May be gold. May be (but probably not) red.
But a small amount of gold or green may show clear in a thin film.

I can almost guarantee its either a leaking radiator hose or the radiator it self. You def should have kept the chevy.

Im okay with the hose, a rad itself would be a bit of a piss off. Chevy is gas and I kept it but thinking I should of kept true to my roots. Looks like christmas will be working on a ferd

ehh I'm on my third radiator including the original. But if your truck is an early 08 they have updated the hoses. They now have 2 orings on both ends instead of just one.

Think it was made the 2nd or 3rd month of 08 so I would say it was a early run. But guess that makes it sound more like a rad
