Q: Coolant pouring out the bottom

asked by on

It was driving normal , no signs of anything failing. I had even gotten back from a two hour drive with the truck the day before. I go Dow the street and right when I was getting home there was a strange noise. When I parked a little white smoke came out and all the coolant came pouring out the bottom front real fast . I would like to know what could have caused it and the best way to fix it

My car has 140 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The problem sounds like you may have broken a radiator hose for it to lose all the fluid so fast. You will need a mechanic like one from YourMechanic come to you and inspect the leak and identify the leak and then a proper quote can be done to do the needed repairs.
