Default Smoke/steam & leaking pink-ish fluid

Greetings. Ok so my car started smoking I am asuming from under the driver side hood, more to the windshield side than the nose. Leaking a fluid that has a tiny pink tint to it... Any idea what broke?? Thanks!!

Welcome to the Board.

No idea what broke. Year, model, engine is always nice to know so that you can be helped properly.
Is the fluid oil like? Coolant like? Have you opened the hood to see from where the leak is coming from? Have you checked fluid levels to see what is low?

hmm, steam and pink, must be coolant. unless I remember wrong, that's about where the heater core lines run through the firewall.

My money is on coolant as well. Isn't Dexcool the color shade of grapefruit juice - a pinkish orange?

Also check around the radiator and the coolant reservoir (when the engine's not hot of course) to see if there is a loose or cracked hose.

No more Saturns! :(
