Taurus collant tank leak

I have a 2000 Taurus wagon, 3.0 V-6 with 98,000 miles. I'm losing fluid from the coolant reservoir I believe. I can't be sure if it is the tank itself or the hoses leading to and from the tank. How can I find the exact source of the leak? And is it a difficult repair to replace the tank? I'm moderately handy with cars.

Thanks for any ideas.

Larry

Tank leakage is quite common & replacing will not me much of a problem.

I agree. Get a new tank.

Two different tanks

One for the DOHC motor and one for the OHV motor.
