Wet Spots? 

Wet Spots?

Lately you’ve been seeing wet spots underneath your vehicle. How do you know if the puddle of strange-looking fluid under your Chevrolet Camaro or your Honda Element may give you some serious trouble down the road?

By just taking note of the fluid’s color and consistency you may be able to identify what the cause of the problem is. Here’s a quick check list:

- Yellowish green, pastel blue or florescent orange colors indicate an overheated engine or an antifreeze leak caused by a bad hose, water pump or leaking radiator.

- Dark brown or black oily fluid means the engine is leaking oil. The leak could be caused by a bad seal or gasket.

- A red oily spot indicates a transmission or power-steering fluid leak.

- A puddle of clear water is usually no problem. It may be normal condensation from your vehicle air conditioner.

Should you need to replace your vehicle’s radiator or engine parts, visit reliable online auto parts stores like Auto Parts Deal where you can also find premium quality Toyota A/C condensers, Volvo catalytic converters, BMW wheels, and more.
