Q: My 2007 Lexus ES 350 won't accelerate but the I can hear the engine running. Is this a coolant or radiator problem

asked by on

My Lexus ES 350 starts and I hear the engine run but when I push the gas pedal it does not move. I parked my car and open the front cap that's connected to my coolant and the liquids were flowing out. Do I need to add coolant or water

My car has 124500 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. If the engine is revving but the vehicle is not moving then it sounds like a transmission failure. This needs to be checked first. If the engine is not revving then it may be an engine issue. I would start by having a transmission specialist take a look at it.
