External coolant leaks are typically through a hose, radiator, water pump, etc. and sometimes a leaking intake manifold gasket depending on the engine design. External leaks are typically found by visual inspection and/or simple pressure testing of the cooling system. To find the leak that exists in your case, and get the required repair estimated, please request an engine cooling system leak diagnostic and the responding certified mechanic will get this resolved for you. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
