Q: Q: Antifreeze leak

asked by on

I have an antifreeze leak. My car is also overheating.

There are three components most common to be the source of your failure, according to other owners: the radiator, water pump or the coolant recovery bottle. I recommend having a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect your entire cooling system for the antifreeze leak, and possibly pressure test your system to see if any other problems are present.
