2007 camry 4 cyl leaking red fluid & overheating

Asked by Oct 22, 2016 at 11:22 AM about the 2007 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2007 4 cyl camry with around 80k miles. It hasn't been driven in
about 2 weeks. Last night I went to the store about 2 miles away and when
I got back to the car there was a puddle of red fluid under the car. I
carefully drove back and the car was overheating as well. Also noticed the
ATF fluid looked low and the coolant reservoir was empty. There is also a
rattling noise coming from the engine bay. It's my mothers car so I dont
drive it that often.

It sounds like you have a coolant leak. Do not drive the vehicle without coolant (coolant can be green or red).

If it's transmission fluid sounds like the radiator cracked at the trans colloid side .if it's coolant ( pinkish) not red. Then somewhere you have a cooling system leak . As far as the rattle that could be many things . Have a professional chk it out for your mother so they can keep her safe and and keep her from being stuck on the side of the road .
