Identifying Common Fluid Leaks from Your Vehicle

Color is one of the leading indicators when determining the source of a fluid leak from a vehicle. Motor oil is typically brown while transmission fluid tends to be red or red-brown. Coolant may be blue in color, and power steering fluid is often a shade of green.

If the fluid is clear or if the color is difficult to determine, the location of the leak may provide a further clue to its source. The best course of action, when faced with any type of fluid leak, is to take your vehicle to an experienced mechanic for a check-up and repair.
