    List of mods, when was the timing belt last done and water pump
    Pics of the car and leak especially to verify it is the reservoir. Depending where the leak is you may be able to just replace the reservoir

    The biggest concern would be the timing belt and water pump. That's die every 7 years or 105k miles, whichever comes first. So the belt should have been done quite a while ago and if not needs to be asap. The water pump usually starts failing soon after the belts due so it's a good idea to replace it then and there. Then an even better thing is to replace the tensioner and pulleys. The last thing you want is to spend money on a belt just for it to break because a pulley seized
