Q: Coolent leak

asked by on

I pulled right out from underneath the car and under the axle on the left side I have all kinds of witness from engine coolant

My car has 50000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there:

There are multiple components that comprise the coolant system on your 2013 Ford Escape that can be the source of your coolant leak; ranging from the thermostat housing, primary radiator hose, water pump, secondary return line or overflow reservoir. The best way to determine what is causing this is to have a professional mechanic complete a coolant leak inspection.
