If it is engine coolant that the car is leaking, you will want to repair that as soon as possible. If you continue to drive it as is, you run the risk of overheating it and causing severe engine damage. Most rubber components on vehicles such as belt and hoses need to be changed every 4-6 years to keep them in good working condition. Have a professional mechanic test your cooling system to locate and repair the coolant leak.
