Q: Coolant leaking from Van

asked by on

My van is leaking coolant.

Hi. The system will need to be checked to see where it is leaking. Some leaks can be a simple fix, like a loose clamp, or split hose. Others can be quite involved. The radiator is the most common leak, followed by the water pump. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, inspect the coolant leak and make the necessary repairs on your vehicle.
