Q: Q: Radiator is leaking

asked by on

My radiator is leaking.

Hello. When a radiator is leaking, it is an issue which requires immediate attention. If you continue to drive under this condition, you will be running the risk of damaging other cooling system parts and ultimately, this could become very costly. The radiator will need to be replaced and the cooling system should be inspected for any other damage. This should be done by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic.
