    Everytime it gets cold out, below lets say 20 my truck leaks a small anount of coolant out of the back side of the engine somewhere. It has always done it so I never cared too much but now I am wondering if I should have it checked out before its out of warranty.

    It doesnt matter if it has been sitting for a month, just when it gets cold out it leaks. I would say the mark on the ground is about were the engine and trans mount. Maybe 3" circle of coolant.

    I agree, thats what the warranty is for. Let them tell you its ok at least you will have it on file. Never heard of this personally.

    I had the EXACT same problem on a F-350 last year and all it ended up being a clamp. Nothing serious at all but definitely something you want to get fixed because it won't go away on it's own.
