Diagnosing a Fluid Leak

Last updated 3 years ago

Fluid leaks are something that just about every driver has experienced at some point. Oil leaks are common in older cars, but many fluids can leave a spot under your car.

In this video, car care expert Lauren Fix shows you how to identify a variety of fluid leaks. By placing a sheet of cardboard under your car while it is parked overnight, you can catch a sample of your leaking fluid. Watch the video to learn about the different colors, textures, and smells of your car’s fluids.

If your car is dripping onto your parking spot, bring it to an expert mechanic right away. Dekalb Tire and Automotive Repair offers a long list of maintenance and repair services in the Atlanta area. Call us at (404) 252-9895 to schedule a service appointment today.
