Q: Q: Coolant is leaking

asked by on

I have a coolant leak.

The cooling system water pump is the most likely failure, but with a car that is over 20 years old, anything is possible to be leaking. I recommend that you have a mechanic, like the ones from YourMechanic, come to you for a thorough diagnosis of the source of your leak, and possibly check the entire cooling system for other problems.
