Q: Antifreeze is leaking

asked by on

I have an antifreeze leak and a broken tube.

The best thing to do is to have your cooling system checked to find the cause of the broken tube. The system may have other issues that would need addressed at the same time. That being the case, I recommend having a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, run a full inspection of your cooling system.
