Question about 1997 Buick Skylark

Leak near the passenger side tire

I have checked all my fuilds several times and all my fluids are fine but the car has a small leak near the passenger side. It is sort of watery and slightly greasy. There is a plastic boot underneath the car and nothing underneath seems wet. What can it be? I also had my horn die and the mechanic said the air bag is right where the switch is and so he installed a button on my dash. In all my 40 years of driving I never had a vechicle with stupid problems as this car. Power windows stopped working one after the other. Odometer stopped working. Just some annoying problems and the car only has 56k.
Can someone help?

You know they put all them electrical dudads on there to drive us nuts, That leak you talk about is most likely condensation from ac evaporator, if you look from under car, under evaporator you will see a small tube protruding out of there, thats to drain the condensation out when its hot out, and the ac is on, or when the heater is on nothing wrong, thats what its designed to do.

Fluid leaks


all that's over there is the rubber brake line and the caliper. Check all connections to lines. Check the bleeder on the caliper and makes sure the hose going to the caliper has the brass washers and the bolts tight

I have a clean 4x4 v6 pickup. It had the orig. brake master cylinder and obviously never had the brakes bled. It started using brake fluid like a bottle every 2 weeks. No caliper or wheel cylinder was...


suggest you "look" for fluid loss issue. fluid has to go somewhere right? either a bad rear wheel cylinder.which inside of rear tires will be wet with brake fluid..either passenger side or drivers side. or a bad brake caliper on the front.which will tell on itself by leaking fluid onto the ground when brakes are applied..brake fluid leaking will tell on itself by inspecting the inside of each tire,on the inside of the tires,front to rear. thank you for choosing fixya.com.

Trans-axle fluid leak


checking the transmission fluid involves lifting the vehicle and removing a plug on the transmission, it is quite difficult and messy if you don't have access to a lift, the vehicle has to be level and at operating temperature in park, there is a small plug on the side of the transmission near the passenger axle shaft. remove the plug slowly, i believe it is an 11mm bolt, if fluid drips out, the level is ok, if no fluid comes out, there is a small plastic screw on cap on top of the transmission itself on the driverside near the oil filter cap, add fluid slowly untill fluid starts to drip out of the plug hole, once the fluid starts to drip, insert the plug and tighten, don't overtighten, just snug it up.!!!make sure you use the right fluid, this is important!!! i believe your fluid is dextron 6, double check in your owners manual, the use of any other fluid will cause damage!!! also, do not remove the small plug on the front of the transmission, that is the pressure plug, all the fluid will shoot out with force if that plug is removed!!!

Brakes


Step1
If you had a brake job you might have air in the system that needs bleed out.
Crack open the bleeder on the caliper and watch the brake fuild come out steadly and close it and don't pump the pedal. Do this to each side this is called bench bleeding and watch the brake fulid level while you are doing this add fuild as you bleed each side.


Step2
Also sounds like a leaking line check under the car for a leaking brake line. Next would be a master cylinder problem. But more than likely a brake line might be rusted up and leaking, sooner or later you will not be able to stop. If its a leaking line it will leak all the fuild out of the master cylinder. You can replace the line and use the bleeding procedure in step one.

Car acts like it is changing gears from time to time


There will be a dipstick at the back of the motor, should be on the left side near the brake system. The car should be warm and placed in drive with e brake engaged. Pull dipstick out and look for the warm mark. The fluid should be at that level.

Engine turns over fine, won't start


the fuel line is located along the passenger side of the frame, and there is several links/splices, including the fuel filter, located just behind the passenger door. check along those lines. My truck wouldn't start and I had a small leak, when I fixed the leak, it started and ran fine. hope this helps
