Question Asked: Coolant leak
February 19, 2010, 04:45 PM
Alright, I had a problem with overheating. It turned out to be the coolant cap, got it replaced for $15.00 at a local Autozone.
About two weeks later, the car ran hot again. I turned off the car and checked underneath it for a leak and found coolant leaking. I waited for it to cool down a bit then opened the coolant cap, completely empty. I refilled it with coolant and it filled up all the way with no fluctuation in level. I capped it and turned the car back on. While the car was running I checked underneath it again and found a pretty hefty leak, not a steady stream but damn close. Anyways, I'm trying to figure out whether it's a hose or a blown head gasket or the radiator. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
