Lots of folks have had to replace the coolant tank due to slow, unidentifiable leaks. It mounts with two bolts and has a hose that goes to the bottom and one to the top. Probably hot air escaping...

My car service light was just coming on as well. It ended up being that it was trying to tell me my rear brakes were coming up due for a change. They weren't. I just reset it.
