I have heavy loss of coolant near the front passenger side tire but the car has not overheated. Have no idea what the problem may be but need to fix it before more damage occurs that I can't afford to fix
Coolant heavily pouring out near passenger side tire. May be the water pump, hasnt overheated yet.
