Q: Coolant is leaking

asked by on

My coolant is leaking.

Hi there. There are many components that make up your cooling system. A water pump, thermostat housing, and hoses are all common places a vehicle will leak besides the radiator. A loss of excess coolant can cause your engine to over heat which would lead to much bigger problems. I’d suggest having a certified mechanic locate your coolant leaks and pinpoint the area needs to be repaired.
