Q: Leaking coolant from passenger side

asked by on

I have a coolant leak coming from the passenger side of my truck, I can't figure out if it's the head gasket or if it's just bad heater hoses. And unsure of how much somethin like this would cost to fix

My car has 204000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. A properly executed pressure test on the cooling system by a qualified technician will uncover what it leaking and possibly uncover any future potential leaks. I suggest having a qualified technician perform an inspection to avoid replacing unnecessary parts. Your Mechanic has several available technicians that can assist you with a coolant is leaking inspection. Unfortunately, Your Mechanic does not offer cylinder head gasket replacement services.
