Finally had enough time to take my C5 roadster out of storage. It is very low milage and I thought well kept. Started right up after checking fluids and general visual. Pulled it into position to be able to get it out of storage and say bright red fluid trailing under the car. Opened the hood and saw red fluid leaking our of the left top back side of the radiator. Shut the car off and checked the radiator. The tell tale mixture of oil in the radiator. No mixing on the oil dipstick just in the radiator. I am still scratching my watch and winding my backside on this one. Any history of this kind of thing or words of wisdom? Cause? Repair? Prevention for the future?
