Q: Q: Hole in radiator

asked by on

I can see a small hole at the top of the radiator next to the upper hose going to the engine block.

If you see a hole in the plastic radiator top tank then you may need to have the radiator replaced and the entire system flushed and filled with new coolant. The radiators on these are made very thin and are prone to a high failure rate. I recommend you have a mechanic like one from YourMechanic check your cooling system for any holes or leaks that need to be repaired.
