Hey guys
My car has been overheating quite a bit ever since i got it serviced from bay city holden
I checked my coolant and noticed that it was reading empty levels so i topped it off and as i was doing it, it was literally gushing out at the bottom lol
So how do i go about fixing this? I might take it to the mechanics but if its an easy fix i wont bother

If it's gushing out you should be able to see where it's leaking from. If they changed the coolant it sounds like they would have loosened the top and bottom radiator hoses and maybe didn't tighten them properly afterwards.

Check your hoses mate, sometimes the fasteners become useless if they've been taken off

Dobes,

There is a overfill feature attached to the coolant bottle. If you're filling it while the coolant temp it hot in the system it will gush out from the coolant overflow bottle.

the usual common overheating issues can be, faulty radiator, split tanks in the radiator, faultly piping, air in the system, faulty thermostat, faulty heater tap. Anyway goodluck.
