Q: Car running hot; won't keep coolant

asked by on

My car is running hot and won't keep coolant.

Coolant leaks are serious problems because the entire cooling system pressurizes as it gets hot. There are many possible sources: radiator, water pump failure, heater hoses, freeze or expansion plugs in the block. I would suggest hiring a top-rated mobile mechanic to come to your home or office to diagnose the leak and inspect the entire cooling system.
