Move this to General forum, OP. You don't seem to have 'another model' and few are probably checking here.

Yes, you need to do something quickly about leaking engine cooling system. Unless you don't mind paying $1000-5000 (head gasket to engine...depending).

Search and read cooling leak threads--use advanced search/title search and get to this quickly, not later.

Come to General. Oh, yes, vibration will be caused by bumps on the wheel, and nothing personal, but from the sounds of it, I think you need to check regional forum and search for recommended local mechanic.

You can do cooling system work yourself, but you need to study really hard here...until your brain is pulsating uncontrollably...and you stand a decent chance of being successful. Pay attention to all the details, as they all matter!

Welcome. You're so lucky you found this place!

Thnx alot man i've changed my tires, way better driving experience. My cooling thing does not leak much. I mean i m not even sure if it does. I check it every once in a while and it stays at mid level tho i put it to the max. I dont see any leaking in the engine. Looks like im safe for now.
