Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Would i be able to fill and drive to a local garage as long as I have water to refill if it leaks out or would I be at risk of damaging the engine block?

Sounds like the coolant reservior has a crack or hole in it, or one of the hoses is loose or cracked that attaches to it. If you can purchase one and replace yourself, great. If you need to drive to the garage, yes, do not let the car overheat at any point driving it to the garage. Do you have AAA? Have it towed.
