Hi! This is Jon on behalf of Expert Village. In this video clip, I will be talking about diagnosing coolant leaks. You may first notice a coolant problem because your car is over heating or running a lot harder than it should. The first thing you want to do is check the engine coolant reservoir and see if that is low. On the side of it, there will be indicators that will tell you how full it should be filled. If your coolant reservoir is low, what you want to do is go ahead and add a little bit more coolant to it and then wait a few days and go ahead and check it again. If in a few days it is low again, then you know that you might have a coolant leak. Next if you have a puddle of liquid under your car that smells sweet, then it is probably coolant; and if you have this much liquid, then you have a major leak.
