Tried to find a small water/coolant leak in right rear of car. Checked the " weep hole" of water pump, hoses etc. Is there a dye I can put into the overflow and check with a " glow light" like when they put dye in the oil to test for leaks . Someone suggested food coloring, but I think it would get diluted to much to detect the source. Any ideas guys ???

Can be the thermostat housing, weep hole, or even the hose on the right side coming off the coolant pipes... It's usually the highest point you see moisture present.

Another item to used is a coolant system pressure tester. It will allow you to pressurize the system and look for leak. Helped me find a bad headgasket. You can borrow one from auto parts stores.
