Answers :

This can be a simple item or major. Most if the time a water hose or radiator will leak and you only need to replace the defective part and refill the car with an antifreeze mix.

If someone can look under hood for a leak, you may be able to find the bad part. If you can not find the bad part, there are testing devices which can be borrowed (Tool loaner programs at autoparts stores) to pressurize the radiator and hoses to force the remaining water from the leak, aiding in finding the problem.

If this is a rapid leak, better to tow the car to a Radiator repair shop, than risk ruining the engine from overheating. Major leaks like engine block seals and head gaskets usually cost more for labor than the actual component costs.

So if you can just change a hose, you can save the remaining antifreeze and reuse it.

I hope my solution helps and please rate my info.
