Q: Coolant leaks out

asked by on February 09, 2016

The coolant is leaking out. I have to keep adding water.

Hello. I would have this issue addressed immediately since an overheating engine can cause a lot of permanent damage. A cooling system pressure test would need to be done to determine where your leak is coming from. From there, a mechanic can move forward with the proper repairs for your vehicle.
