    could be radiator, hose leaking, rad cap. these are a few of many possibles. insert a dye into the system and watch for the changed color to determine the leak.

    Coolant leaks are considered critical on any vehicle. The first step is to perform a coolant system pressure test. This test will pressurize the system so that external leaks can be pin pointed and the correct repairs can be made.
