If you’re unsure about where a leak might be coming from, or what color it is, placing a piece of newspaper underneath your vehicle might help.

How it's done

  • A mechanic will first identify the type of fluid leaking and the origin of the leak. Providing the mechanic with this information can help save time and will give him or her a better idea of what the problem might be. If the leak appears to be water coming from the front of the engine, the mechanic should check your vehicle’s air conditioning system to make sure it is working properly. If the leak appears to be brake fluid, the mechanic may have to replace brake lines or wheel cylinder seals. When replacing brake lines, it is wise to have all of lines replaced at the same time. This will guarantee that all the lines are new and will not be affected by corrosion in the same way the old lines were. The mechanic will then go through a process called “bleeding” in which excess air is removed from the braking system. They will then top off brake fluid as necessary. If the leak is from a wheel cylinder seal, the mechanic will also inspect brake shoes to ensure their effectiveness. If the leak appears to be gasoline, either the filler neck, gas tank, or both may need to be replaced. The mechanic will determine what needs to be replaced and perform the necessary repairs. During the process, the mechanic will make sure that the new parts fit together nicely to ensure that there are no further leaks.
