Q: Q: Not starting

asked by on

We charged the battery and did an alternator check. Charger said alt was bad so we replaced it. Vehicle still won't start. Upon looking closer under the hood, to the right of the alternator there are a couple hoses and I can see antifreeze under the hoses. Thoughts please?

My car has 59000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
