2008 Hyundai Accent Lost Coolant After Collision

Asked by May 20, 2017 at 11:52 PM about the 2008 Hyundai Accent GL Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My son hit a raccon in the road at 65mph. It
damaged the bumper with some cracks very low.
However, he noticed a considerable coolant loss
after arriving home (about 5 min away). It's night
right now, so we can't figure out where it's leaked
out. Any ideas of where or what to look for? It's
gotta be down low near the front of engine.

Maybe a cracked radiator. Don't drive it!

It is possible that the coolant reservoir is cracked due to the accident.

Cracked radiator!!! The bottom well of the radiator is only plastic, so easy to break. Looks like the raccoon impacted the radiator fans and cause enough stress and pressure to crack the radiator itself.
