Q: Hose leaking antifreeze

asked by on

A hose in my car is leaking antifreeze.

Hello. The most common coolant leak that suddenly occurs on this engine is a water pump malfunction. It will start leaking coolant and it will appear to come from near the rear of the engine. It is also possible that it is coming from the radiator or a hose. I would typically do a cooling system pressure test to see if I can force the coolant from the place that it is leaking. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, inspect the coolant leak on your vehicle and replace the damaged hose.
