You have a leak. Open the hood or get under the car to determine where it is leaking from. Water pump, hose, radiator, etc.

Best Answer

It could be many things. May want to first check your hoses, radiator cap, and reservoir since those are cheaper fixes but it can be many things really.

I have the same problem water seems to be coming from above the alternator somewhere,where is your water leaking from can you tell is it from top or bottom?


I didnt ask my mother where the mechanic said it came from but i had to get a new water pump.
