I noticed the car is loosing lot of antifreeze, but when I check I can not see clearly where is the exact place of leakage, but it seems like the antifreeze is coming from behind the engine, underneath the consjusted pipes. Not sure exactly where is the leakage but it is not on the radiator or any part that I can spot so easy. Thanks

Welcome to 2CarPros.

If you are unable to see where it is coming from, you will need to pressurize the system so you can take your time and locate it. Behind the engine are a few hoses that can leak as well as the heater core hoses.

Take a look through these links and let me know if it helps. By the way, you will need a tool to pressurize the system. Often times, a parts store will lend or rent one to you.

Let me know what you find. You may need a mirror to see behind the engine.

Take care,
