Check the Ground

One easy way to identify leaks is by paying close attention to the ground beneath your vehicle. Take a look at your driveway and check for colorful puddles, spreading stains, and other evidence of problems. If you find anything suspicious, schedule an inspection right away.

Fluids That Are Most Likely to Leak

The most common automotive fluid leaks include engine oil, antifreeze, battery acid, brake fluid, fuel, and differential fluid. These are leaks that are less likely to occur when vehicles are regularly tuned up and on top of all other manufacturer-recommended maintenance. Even during a quick oil change service, auto technicians can check all fluid levels for signs of problems.
