Q: Leaking water from top of engine

asked by on

My vehicle is leaking water from the top of the engine.

This is most likely coolant leaking. There is a coolant outlet housing at the rear of the engine in the at the top of the block in the V. This is a possible area for the leak. A cooling system pressure test should be run if there is no obvious coolant leak detected. You may want to enlist the help of a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will have the tools, equipment, and experience to repair and fill/bleed the cooling system.
