asked by on September 18, 2017

My car is leaking green fluid and started running hot.

My car has 182725 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You should not let the engine get low on coolant until the leak is identified and fixed. You may have a water pump or radiator leaking. You should have the cooling system pressure tested to locate the leak in the system and then a repair can be done.
