Instant panic! Why is my car leaking? With all the different fluids at work inside your vehicle, a leak can indicate any number of issues.

Car Leaking Oil

If your leak is dark or light brown, chances are, it’s motor oil. It could potentially be brake fluid or gear lubricant, too.

Car Leaking Coolant

Radiator coolant is another leak culprit. The fluid will look yellow, and it may be the result of the wrong coolant or a loose hose clamp or damaged element. If you have green fluid leaking, then it’s probably antifreeze.

Water Leaking From Car

If your leak is clear, it’s most likely just condensation from the air conditioner. It’s quite common to see small water spots underneath a car after the air conditioner has been running.
