Q: Car is overheating and leaking antifreeze.

asked by on

My car is overheating and leaking antifreeze. I think it is maybe the water pump, thermostat, or radiator.

Besides the item you listed you would need to have the intake manifold, head gaskets, hoses checked. This engine has had all of these components fail. Your cooling fans will need to be checked for proper operation also. My recommendation is to have a qualified certified mechanic, like the ones at YourMechanic, come and diagnose your coolant problems.
