You first need to locate exactly were the leak is coming from. Try putting down some paper to see where its coming from. You could also use a leak detector dye. You want to check the hoses, water pump, radiator and heater core first. A cracked head or block could be the issue. It may just be a gasket.

Obviously the first thing to due is locate the leak. Clean the engine then look for a leak. Once you find it you can fix it and refill the system.


Answer by  Amber40 (24961)

You might want to invest in a leak detector kit if your really desperate. Some of the more common places leaks occur are the radiator, the hoses, the water pump, and the freeze plugs. A good tip is to lay cardboard under the car and let it set to get an idea of the general area to check.
