2002 jaguar xtype coolant leak from radiator


Asked by Feb 01, 2017 at 05:24 PM about the 2002 Jaguar X-TYPE 3.0

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm losing anti-freeze daily from my reservoir, there seems to be a leak when parking under the drivers side of the radiator. Can a stop leak solution stop this? If so where can it be added as there is no radiator cap.

Try Alumaseal but like Tom says it is a temporary fix that can buy you a little time but don't risk more expensive problems by ignoring the problem.

I've always used Bars Leak. It seemed to work but at some point it would fail also. Bite the bullet and have a shop find and repair the problem. 16 year old car probably has radiator problems but could be any part of the cooling system.
