Q: Car leaks antifreeze from hose

asked by on

My car is leaking antifreeze from a hose behind the motor.

Coolant leaks can be tricky. I recommend having a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, come out to your car’s location to run a diagnostic inspection of your antifreeze leak, and suggest the best path to repair.
