Q: Explorer leaking coolant.

asked by on

I have a coolant leak. I just had the radiator replaced.

I would return to where you had the radiator installed so they can check the radiator for leaks. It is possible that a hose clamp may have been left a little loose or something minor like that. It happens to the best of us. If that is the case they should take care of it no charge. It is possible that now that there is a good radiator in the vehicle that another weak spot in your cooling system has sprung a leak.
