Q: Q: Leaking coolant

asked by on

My car has a coolant leak.

If you have a coolant leak on your car it can normally be found by observing where it is leaking from to determine what the cause of the leak is. If it is leak from the front of the engine, then this normally means the water pump is leaking. If it is leaking near the radiator, it means the radiator may be leaking from a hose or have a crack in it. A pressure test on the cooling system can be performed by a technician by pumping air into the radiator fill port and looking for coolant leaking on the ground. If you need assistance with this, I would recommend having a certified mechanic inspect your vehicle to locate the coolant leaks.
