Customer Question

I have a 2001 Toyota Avalon and have noticed that my Carpet has been wet on the drivers side under the dash. Yesterday I went to turn on the heater and it wont blow warm air. I checked the raidiator water and it is very low. I just had a new Radiator installed a few weeks ago so it should have been filled. Is this all related and what could be leaking?
JA: How old are the hoses? And what driving conditions do you most often encounter?
Customer: I had all hoses replaced when the radiator was replaced. It hasnt been driven much because it is a second car right now
JA: Are you fixing your Avalon yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: The work was done at the Mazda dealership my Son works at. I had them go through the entire car mechanically and change all fluids, belts and hoses.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

Hi Im David, did you notice if it was water or antifreeze that was on the floor soaking the carpet?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
It was discolored and couldnt figure it out when I checked my radiator fluid this morning the last mechanic used a yellowish antifreeze and I believe this could have been what has been leaking on the drivers side
