If you’ve found coolant in a puddle underneath your vehicle, you may have a leak in your cooling system. Keeping your cooling system and radiator working is an easy way to keep your engine running smoothly.

A hot engine can damage critical components. The cooling system keeps the engine cool by moving coolant through the hot components. The radiator takes the heat and sends it to the outside air. If coolant levels are low or the cooling system isn’t working properly, the engine will overheat.

Coolant leaks are easily found by service people during routine maintenance, so following the manufacturer’s service schedule is important. If you’ve found coolant underneath your car or noticed the temperature gauge rising higher than normal, it’s important to have your car looked at. The service people at Sheehy Ford of Richmond can help you make sure your cooling system is working.
