I was in a car accident 2 weeks ago, the radiator was put out of place and at the time of the accident, coolant or windshield fluid was coming out. I don't know which it was. I haven't touched the car to inspect it, but the insurance has. I just want to know, let's say it was coolant that came out the car, will more damage occur since I haven't added new coolant in 2 weeks? I really have learned a lot about vehicles since the accident and this question has been in my mind.

Hello,

The best course of action would be to take a look at the coolant level and make sure it is at the correct level.
Keep in mind that if the coolant leaked out and coolant level was low, the engine would have likely overheated. And when an engine overheats it can damage the internals.

When you drive where does the temperature gauge stay? Is it in the middle as usual or is it towards the 'H'?
