I first noticed it when I started getting no heat in my car. Just wondering what the problem could be if anyone has any answers for me I would appreciate it. A: Here’s a few suggestions when dealing with coolant leaks and heater core issues etc. No1 test the anti-freeze with a anti-freeze tester that most Wally Marts etc carry for around 8 bucks or so.I f the tester and the coolants colour indicates it’s worn out or dirty change the coolant in the vehicle by using the rad’s drain plug , adding water steadily and reflushing the rad till it basically comes out as water mostly, then add the coolant mixture.Make sure unless you live in the very severe coldest climates not to really mix the anti-freeze and water more then 50/50 or to about -45, plus don’t dump coolant on the ground it’s sweet taisting to animals and will kill dogs and cats etc. No2 Once proper coolant mixtures and levels have been established cold start up the engine with no blower motors on at all then squeeze the top rad
