Q: Hole in radiator, leaking

asked by on

Saw liquid was leaking from the bottom on the passenger side by the engine, had my cousin take a look to see where it was coming from, and noticed it was the radiator and there was a hole with everything leaking out. Last night I drive it and there was nothing until this morning when i went for work, however once I saw it leaking and had an idea what it could be I havent drove it. It is parked where I stay at, not sure if i could drive to a shop or try to get someone to look at it where it's parked.

My car has 90200 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
