Were not too sure where the leak is coming from, we just noticed a puddle when we first pulled out before all this happened. I peeked at the undercarriage and cant see anything dripping at the moment, so im not sure how fast its leaking. We originally added coolant only to the coolant tank. Im guessing that didn't work at first because the radiator was still bone dry. Now that the radiator has coolant in it, it seems fine. Im just worried about driving long distance, and im assuming everything is closed on holidays. In case you couldnt tell this is our first car and we only bought it recently - i.E. We know shiza about cars. It seems like the last owner took very good care of it tho. And all fluids were topped up b4 we got it. Weve driven it about 5000 k since then with no problems. Last time we drove it we took it thru a high powered car wash, maybe this somehow caused the leak? Do you recommend we try and find an open mechanic tomorrow before our roadtrip? Or do you think it would be ok to drive it anyways, keeping constant eye on temperature, and keep filling with h2o if needed. Its not very cold here.
