Q: Car leaking radiator fluid

asked by on

The car overheated and is now leaking radiator fluid.

Hello. The first thing we need to address is what is causing your car to overheat. When the cooling system is not working properly, it will cause your car to overheat. When your car overheats, it boils the antifreeze in the engine causing it to push out of the radiator. The leaking that you see should be resolved after the issue that is causing your car to overheat is repaired. It will be necessary to have your cooling system inspected to determine what is causing your car to overheat.
