Punched a hole

Asked by Jan 24, 2017 at 11:29 AM about the 2006 Pontiac Torrent AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was jacking the truck up in the front (dumb move)
but the truck slide back of the jack punched a hole
in a line or radiator? But here's the question the
radiator fluid is orange, but the fluid that came out
was Greenish yellow and it was pressurized....

That sounds like anti-freeze and the vehicle must have be warmed up. The coolant system is the only thing under pressure in that area.

You likely poked a hole in a refrigerant line that the A/C uses. Sounds like from the color that it has leak detection dye in it.
