Check your other Q numb nuts, you already got my answer on there.































As far as the over heating put some Anti-freeze in the rad, keep the oil up and keep all the tires properly inflated. Be easier if i knew what leaked and how many miles are on it, and the tire brand.

Since it might get overheated, try to rinse the radiator by open the screw nut underneat the radiator to drain out the water. Then anti freeze must have.















From what you told me, I think your engine fan is not working properly.
