I took my car to a dealership to get an oil change. They told me that I had a coolant leak, but I didn't want to pay the outrageous price to get it check and repaired. I have a friend who is a mechanic and I asked him to look at it. He told me that the only place he could see any leaks were from the freeze plugs. I went to get replacements, and when I got close to home, my engine overheated. When I parked in the driveway, I opened the hood and steam was coming from the rear of the engine behind the alternator, and there was coolant splashed all over. Is it really the freeze plugs that are damaged and if so, can someone show me where they are located? If it's not, what could be the problem so I can fix it? Thank you so much!
have the same problem?
