Seems to be a radiator leak but now a few other lights came on Mechanic's Assistant: How old are the hoses? And just to clarify, can you actually see the leak? No ma’am and no smoke from the engine either not quite sure it’s a 2013 dodge dart Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Dart yourself? What have you tried so far? Just tried to get home. Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you? Haven’t tried anything.

Hi there I will do all I can to help. Do you see any antifreeze on the ground or the vehicle is overheating? also can you send a picture of the lights on the dash?

It's my girlfriends car she turned the car off already as far as I know she didn't see a leak on the ground but I think there might be a leak in the houseHoseShe said it sounded like something was bubbling but the car wasn't smoking. Shortly after the power steering light came on and so did the abs and then a red lightning bolt
Automotive Expert
Oh ok i understand, to properly diagnose what is going on with the car, you would have to run a diagnostic scan, the red lightning bolt usually means a problem with the throttle body. but unfortunately, to properly start diagnosing the issue you have to start with the trouble codes.

Okay so we'd need the engine code reader
Automotive Expert
yes maybe more than an engine code reader, you also would need to scan the abs system. I believe Autozone or most part stores provide this service for free.

Will do. As of right now the car is off until tomorrow. I'm guessing it'll overheat again ?
Automotive Expert
if it is overheating check the coolant level, under the hood, then run it in place to check if there is any leaks.

Okay thank you
Automotive Expert
if the vehicle is at normal operating temperature and is not producing heat from the heater, that is usually an indication that your coolant is low and your vehicle might overheat.

Okay does the radiator have anything to do with it ? Or we'd have to get the codes first
Automotive Expert
The radiator has coolant/antifreeze inside, this is where the coolant circulates to cool down the vehicle. the codes would mostly be to find the problem related to the throttle body (lightning bolt sign) and abs light.

Okay thank you
