Not all leaks are cause for concern but many can be so it’s important to know what you’re looking at when it comes to leaking fluid.
Find out how to identify what is the cause of the leak, if this is cause for concern and what to do about it.
Firstly, if not obvious, use a piece of white tissue or paper to check the colour of the leaking fluid.
When you spot a leak, always check the colour to determine if it’s something you should be worried about. Generally, any fluid that isn’t water will mean your car will need to be given a once-over by a qualified mechanic to ensure you’re safe on the road.
Don’t ignore fluid leaks! The inconvenient trip and cost to the mechanic to get your leak fixed will save you a lot of time, stress, and money in the long run.
