I hit a raccoon tonite, and now it's leaking coolant (green stuff?).I can't get to the shop until Saturday - is it safe to drive at all?

Do you

EVERY COON I EVER HIT LEAKED "RED STUFF". LOL!

HOW FAST IS IT LEAKING. LIKE 30 SECONDS FILLS UP A 16oz COKE BOTTLE?

HOW LONG HAS IT SAT?----HOW MUCH WATER DOES IT TAKE TO REFILL IT?

IT MAY COME OUT FASTER WHEN DRIVEN!

CAN YOU SEE THE LEAKS SOURCE?

WHAT ABOUT USING A STRONG FLASHLIGHT AND A BIG HAND MIRROR?

IF YOU WERE GOING STRAIGHT TO A SHOP---AND HAD PLENTY OF WATER ON BOARD TO PERIODICALLY FILL IT BACK UP---I MIGHT COULD SEE THAT!I MEAN BEING ATTENTIVE THE WHOLE WAY

DAILY ROUND ABOUTIF IT WAS A SMALL DRIP----AGAIN WITH PLENTY OF WATER ON HAND

IF IT'S AN EZ FIX---DIY

ALL IN ALLIF YOU CAN'T KEEP IT FILLED---OR MIGHT FORGETBETTER SAFE THAN SORRY. STAY AT HOME! (AT LEAST THE CAR)

SPEAKING OF WHICH---MAYBE YOU NEED SOMETHING STOUT. LIKE MY TWO?

---IF IT'S EZ, OR YOU CAN GET US A PIC---MAYBE WE CAN FIX IT?

LET US KNOW WHAT YOU FIND
