Something leaking and dripping off the bottom of the skirt at the front of the car

Hi, could be many things. First you should determine what type of fluid has leaked. If it is green or orange color and feels like water and slimy, it is most likely coolant. If it it reddish and oily, transmission fluid. If it is brownish to black and oily, probably engine oil. Bluish/purpleish/clear and like water it is windshield wiper solvent.
Second is to look underneath the area of the vehicle and try to determine which component the leak originated from. If you can determine those 2 things, repost the findings for further assistance.

Please vote if this helped! Thanks, Mike

Clear fluid leaking from the front right side of a 2000 vw beetl

Could be brake fluid, so look at the brake fluid resevoir.
Could also be water from the evaporator, from the air conditioner.
Is it oily to the touch?

It is leaking muliple substances. one is red leaking on the right side of the car and right next to the red leak its a tube looking thing that is frayed and leaking a clear oily substance, the other is...

The "Red" is transmission fluid, the "Clear" is most likely power steering fluid, or it could be "refrigerent oil" from the A/C. I don't know what could be leaking in the rear of the car maybe oil from one of the rear struts or maybe brake fluid. Do the brakes seem to work OK yet? If so it's probably not brake fluid. It could be condensation coming out of the muffler, there a weap hole in the muffler to allow excess water to run out. It might be picking up some color from the muffler. The transmission and the power steering are the biggest concerns you don't want to let the fluid level get low on either of those. If the transmission is leaking on the right side it's most likely the axel seal or maybe the pan gasket. Neither of these should be an expensive fix. But, you should get it to a shop and have it checked out. Try to find an independent shop instead of the dealer the independents are usually cheaper and do just as good of work. Get an estimate!!

Water leak in front of engine. hoses appreare to be no leaking. What else could it be?

Possibly condensation from air conditioner.(This is nothing to worry about) If it's clear and definately has the consistency of water it's just condensation.But if it is oily or thick then it could be either power sterring fluid or brake fluid.(if it was either you'd have steering noise or braking problems also.

Where do we check the transmission fluid for o1 standard

usally just a small container (like the master cyclinder holds the brake fluid) for standard transmissions if any.
