1993 accord leaking a large quantitly of some fluid

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

My 1993 Honda accord EX , the transmission quit. auto, no gears forward or reverse.

Check the fluid level. Automatic transmissions won't go into gear without enough fluid. If it's low, you've probably got a leak somewhere that you need to find.

Sounds like maybe the ECU had taken in some water. Is your ECM located behind the engine on the firewall? There are two large fuses located on the passenger side wheel well in the engine bay. They are two large (2" plastic covers) over them.

1996 honda accord leaking yellow fluid

Is it greenish yellow? Determine the location of the leak to find your problem. Could be: weep hole on the water pump, hose to and from heater core, radiator, one of two large radiator hoses, faulty radiator cap, cracked reservoir. If it's the water pump it will be near your belt(s) area on the driver's side of the motor.

Having trouble locating were the transmission

Looking at the car from the front, the dip stick for the transaxle is down very low at the left hand side of the engine, close to being under the battery. It is normally yellow. Follow the large water hose that runs down next to your battery. The yellow dip stick handle is right along side of that hose (to the right of it) down low. It will either pull out or unscrew.
Hope this helps you.

97 Altima dashboard brake light stays on

Check your brake fluid level in the engine compartment. Its located on the rear RH side of the engine compartment, its a white/clear resevoir connecting to a large black circular object. If the fluid is low, fill to proper level, also I would recommend having your brake system checked as there may be a leak. If the fluid is fine and at the proper level, you may have a damaged/broken brake fluid level sensor or damaged/broken Emergency brake switch. Hopefully this helps....please rate thanks!!

1993 Jeep Wrangler heater/temperture gauge

if you are not showing a temp. reading ,you may need to replace the thermostat. as far as the draft goes your vent is probably stuck open. i also have a '93 with the same issue. i could not adjust the cable enough to close the vent so i removed the grill on the cowl in front of the windshield, the vent door is down and toward the left side (drivers side).if you can not push it closed to stay,i used a large piece of foam placed inside a plastic bag to block it. it has worked fine for almost 5 years.

Transmission Fluid

some manufactures have chosen not to put dipsticks on their vehicles, being if it is not leaking the level will not go down. thus if you don't see a leak there is no reason to check the fluid level. mike
