    Got a radiator leak but company wants to get me to one of our terminals to fix, if i get a DOT inspection, which i know they will be working hard next week due to the 72hr road check from the 8th to the 10th, does anyone know if i could be put out of service for leak? I know it will probably take my company aweek or so before they get me to a terminal

    Yeah, you will be put out of service with a radiator leak. Call your company, tell them it is POURING out like a gusher and it needs fixing NOW.

    Also, the shop mechanic would be more than willing to exagerate how bad it's leaking to get the business of fixing it.

    I'd get it fixed just because coolant is a vital component of not being stuck on the side of the road.
