Coolant Leak

Expert cooling system mechanics are happy to fix and help maintain your engine's endurance.

Often, unique equipment is required to service an engine's cooling system, which are possessed by vehicle repair shops like 12th Street Auto Care Center.

Antifreeze Leaking from My Car

A smoking engine is a very noticeable sign that something is wrong with your car, and possibly your engine cooling system. Another common sign that something is wrong with your engine cooling system is a coolant leak. A good way to tell if your car is leaking coolant is to look under your car at the ground for any colored puddles or a trail of drops on the garage floor or driveway. Coolant, or antifreeze, can be red, pink, blue, green, orange or yellow. Antifreeze leaks can occur due to physical damage to your system. Rocks or debris from the road can cause harm to hoses or any other part and cause leaking. Sometimes, hoses can become old and warn out and spring an external coolant leak.
