Q: Coolant leak around engine

asked by on

There is a coolant leak from behind or at the bottom of the engine.

Hello. There are coolant hoses that run on the side, back, and front of the engine with the coolant circulating throughout. It is possible that a broken hose around the back of the engine is causing it to appear like the coolant is leaking from the bottom of the engine. A certified technician can do a coolant system pressure test to pinpoint where the leak is coming from and make necessary repairs.
