Q: Antifreeze leak

asked by on

I changed my radiator a couple days ago but I still see anti freeze coming out the bottom of my car is that normal

My car has 155000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

It is not normal to see any coolant leaking after a radiator is installed. I would recommend having a coolant pressure test done to see if the hoses reinstalled after radiator was put in are sealing properly. You may also have a defective radiator. Only after the test and leak identified will you know if you have additional leaks or installation of hoses did not seal good.
