Is Your Car Leaking Fluid? Don't Panic!

Red Fluid

Red fluid leaking from your car is usually an indication that your transmission or power steering system is leaking. This might be due to a faulty transmission seal or a hole in the return line that feeds the fluid between systems. Dry the leak up with a Transmission System Evaluation at Coggin DeLand Honda.

Orange Fluid

Orange fluid leaking from your vehicle can be one of many things. Rust in your radiator can cause leaking antifreeze or condensation to appear orange. Transmission fluid can also look orange depending on its age. Get to the bottom of the problem with an AC System Leak Evaluation in DeLand, Florida today.

Yellow Fluid

If your vehicle is leaking yellow fluid, radiator coolant is typically the cause. The issue could be stemming from a loose hose clamp or a damaged o-ring. Your vehicle's manufacturer provides specifications of what coolant you should use, but we're happy to help get to the bottom of the problem in the DeLand area today. If you don't use the right coolant, leaks are more likely to occur. Get that leak taken care of with an AC System Leak Evaluation with Coggin DeLand Honda.

Green Fluid

Green fluid leaking from your car is probably an antifreeze leak. Antifreeze usually leaks from your vehicle's hoses, radiator or water pump when fittings, hoses, clamps or other components have worn out or are not properly attached. If you don't use the right antifreeze, leaks are more likely to occur. Check your owner's manual for the right antifreeze for you. An AC System Leak Evaluation at Coggin DeLand Honda should give you the answers you need to get rid of that pesky leak.

Blue Fluid

That blue fluid leaking from your vehicle is most likely windshield wiper fluid. Over time and through usage, the fluid reservoir and tubing that carries the windshield wiper fluid through your wiper blades can gradually degrade. This degradation can result in blue fluid leaks. We recommend having your windshield wiper components evaluated in the DeLand area today.

Clear Fluid

If your vehicle is leaking a clear fluid you are probably just fine! Usually that clear fluid is just condensation from your air conditioning system. If you are concerned about the state of your vehicle's air conditioning system, we offer an A/C Check at Coggin DeLand Honda.

Dark Brown Fluid

Dark brown fluid leaking from your vehicle could be coming from many different areas within your vehicle. As motor oil ages, it becomes dark brown and eventually black and thick. Brake fluid has a darker brown appearance as well. In either case, a fluid leak evaluation should help you diagnose the issue and get on your way in DeLand, Florida!

Light Brown Fluid

Light brown fluid leaking from your vehicle is usually either gear lubricant or newer motor oil. Gear lubricant tends to have a bad smell associated with it. Motor oil really only produces an odor when it is burning. If you believe you are leaking gear oil or engine oil, we recommend scheduling a fluid leak evaluation as soon as possible in DeLand, Florida.

Pink Fluid

Pink fluid leaking from your car is probably either power steering fluid or transmission fluid. These leaks are generally caused by a hole in the return line or worn seal. A Transmission System Evaluation at Coggin DeLand Honda should give you the information you need to fix the faulty components.
