A coolant leak can be disastrous because coolant is such an important part of the engine cooling system. If your engine overheats, you are going to end up on the side of the road calling for help. So, making sure you have enough coolant and that you don’t have a coolant leak will extend the life of your car. Coolant may also get dirty, which could also hurt your engine, and might need to be replaced.
What to Look Out For
- The temperature gauge – if you have a coolant leak, you may notice that the temperature gauge in your car begins to rise.
- Engine overheating – this is the most obvious one, but it’s a sign of low or dirty coolant.
- Low Coolant warning light – most modern cars will have a sensor telling you that you are running out of coolant.
A coolant leak could be caused by many different factors. If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, schedule a visit to the European Service Center. Our ASE certified service mechanics have the experience and tools to inspect, diagnose, and repair any coolant issues you are having.
