i could smell burning coolant, so after snooping around under the hood i found a small drip coming from a plastic connection. does anybody know if there is an o-ring in there, or why it would be leaking from here?http://i1180.photobucket.com/albums/x403/pmartell12/escaladejan2011002smallarrow.jpghttp://i1180.photobucket.com/albums/x403/pmartell12/escaladejan2011005smallarrow.jpg (http://i1180.photobucket.com/albums/x403/pmartell12/escaladejan2011005smallarrow.jpg)

I'm in the same situation here. I've looked around and they keep saying there's an O-ring that needs to be replaced? I'll probably go to the nearby dealer and ask for the part.

Wait a minute! I was coincidentally trying to resolve a coolant smells issue and found a leak in the same spot! Mine is a 2006...
