Question about 1993 Honda Accord
Close to the middle more on the drivers side, up close to the dashboard. I have checked all fluid levels I can find, and do not see where something is low. (Brake, oil, transmission, wiper) This started after a Jiffy Lube oil change, but it does not look like oil. It is dark however. Any suggestions?
You assume this accord has power steering?? well you are quite wrong.. Most accords made in 93 did not have power steering.. plus the tank for that is not up close by the dash..your best bet is checking to see if they over tightened the drain bolt (most places do this very commonly) and check your oil filter.. some times they are not put on right.. or tight enough and they leak.. and that should be right about you dash area

Did u just get an oil change, or did they do anything else? Keep checking all the fluid levels, something has to get low enough to notice sooner or later. I noticed u didn't mention power steering, I assume your accord has it, did u check it? Also the radiator level. It could also be from a oil drain plug that is loose, or was put on too tight (which would strip the threads and leak) or a loose oil filter that wasn't properly tightened. So keep checking those fluids. There is a chain fast oil change place next door to where I work, and I am aware of some nightmare stories. So be careful where u go, there are good and bad garages, dealers, and oil change places. Check your local Better Business Bureau for a listing of complaints. A co-worker had the 4x4 transfer case cracked by over tightening the drain bolt. It was leaking pretty bad, and they were told to 'bring it in once a week, and we'll top it off'. Another co-worker had an oil change, drove home, his mother took his car out and the oil filter was not tightened, all the oil leaked out, and the engine seized. The shop swore up and down it wasn't their fault, and they just turned it over to there lawyers. 6 months later, the co-worker left for another job, and he hadn't collected a dime for his new $2k motor, or 10 days to rent a car. Let me know what happens, I'm guessing the shop is responsible, and you should have some one check the drain plug and oil filter asap to see if that's where the fluid on the ground is coming from. The location u describe is where the leak would be. countrycurt0
