Q: Coolant leaking quickly

asked by on

My vehicle is leaking coolant quickly and is overheating. I am not sure where the leak is.

A common problem with your truck is that the water pump will leak. It is possible that there may be another reason your truck is leaking as well. Perhaps a coolant hose, or your radiator has sprung a leak. I would ask for help from one of the mechanics at YourMechanic to come to you and diagnose exactly what is causing your coolant leak.
