Q: Car coolant leak

asked by on

There is coolant leaking from my car.

A: The main cause of coolant leaking from this...

The main cause of coolant leaking from this vehicle is a crack in the radiator. If the coolant is leaking from the front of the motor, then this may be a leak in your water pump. I would suggest having a technician from YourMechanic come out and perform a pressure test on the cooling system to determine where the leak is coming from.
