Q: Q: Leaking coolant

asked by on

My car is leaking coolant.

A cooling system pressure test should be performed to show the actual area of the issue. The water pump gasket, thermostat housing gasket, coolant hoses, radiator, heater hoses, or even the greater core could be the cause of the leak. Keeping the coolant level at the correct level is also very important for the health of your engine. Major engine damage can occur if the motor is allowed to overheat. A cooling system inspection can easily be set up with one of the qualified technicians here at YourMechanic very easily and can be set up to make a visit according to your schedule.
