Q: Floorboards wet from coolant leak.

asked by on

I'm leaking coolant, and the floorboard is wet on both the driver and passenger side.

There are a few things that could cause a wet floor. A clogged evaporator drain if you are lucky and a leaking heater core if you are not so lucky. To address the leaking coolant, I would have a technician, such as one from YourMechanic, diagnose the cause of your leak.
