Q: Coolant leaking

asked by on December 09, 2016

coolant leaking all over ground cant seem to find the source

My car has 175000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

There are a number of places where the coolant may be leaking from such as any one of the radiator hoses going to or from the radiator or motor, the thermostat housing, or the water pump. i would suggest having an expert from YourMechanic come to your locaiton to diagnose and inspect your coolant leak.
