Q: Radiator leak

asked by on

My radiator is leaking.

Hello, if you have a coolant leak from your radiator, then this is something that need to diagnosed and repaired sooner than later to avoid further engine damage. If it’s a small leak, and your best guess is the radiator, I would recommend getting the aid of a mechanic who can pressure test the cooling system to pinpoint the area of leakage. If you know that it is your radiator, then when you have it replaced. I would recommend having a qualified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, determine the source of any coolant leaks and replace your radiator if necessary.
