Where was the leak coming from?

How long did you drive it hot?

Do you have tools, and are you good at following directions?

This is a very easy fix, that could be done by a rookie in a few hours.

Report back, when it gets diagnosed.
I couldn't see where the leak was coming from cuz I was stuck on the expresslane.

But it was leaking a green liquid.

I pulled over right when it got hot.
So I turned it off. Turned it back on, and it was still on, but I had to drive to the nearest exit which was about half a mile away.

Yeah I have tools but not a place to work on it cuz I just moved to an apartment complex.

How long would this fix take?
