Q: Q: Car leaking antifreeze

asked by on

My car is leaking antifreeze from a hose in the rear of the engine.

Hi. I suggest you have an expert, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect the coolant leak and repair it. Coolant leaks can lead to overheating, which can cause catastrophic engine damage. I’d recommend getting this fixed ASAP.
