Q: Bad coolant tube

asked by on

I may have a bad coolant tube. It looks like it melted, and there is no coolant in the car.

Your coolant tubes are made out of plastic. In my experience, your water pump impeller is also made out of plastic. If you have a failure in one system, it very well can cause failures in all the systems. You may very well require a complete coolant system repair. Proper inspection by a qualified mechanic should be performed before a mechanic moves on to a replacement of your coolant tube.
