Q: Q: Coolant leak.

asked by on

My car is leaking coolant from underneath the engine.

A cooling system pressure test using dedicated equipment will be able to pinpoint the location of your coolant leak. Running a vehicle low on coolant can cause it to overheat, resulting in extensive engine damage. My best advise is to have your vehicle inspected by a trained professional, such as one from YourMechanic, as soon as possible.
