Question about Audi A6
I have an 2001 Audi A6 with 112,000 miles. Just recently I have noticed fluid leaking around the left front tire. I'm wondering if it is brake fluid or transmission fluid. I need to know what types of fluid could possibly leak there. Also, where do I check brake and transmission fluid levels?
If it is near the tire it is brake fluid. The brake fluid reservoir is back by the firewall driver side of engine compartment. Your car uses DOT 4 brake fluid.

if it is sure break fluid. then you have to change break master cylinder, if your car rear wheel drive that might be shaft oil and vibration come from a worn rear wheel bearing.

the dipstick is located behind the front transmission mount and its held in by a 12mm bolt. you may need to remove the transmission mount to check the fluid. the color of the dipstick is yellow, make sure the car is in park and fully warmed up to operating temerature and on a level surface before checking the fluid.

This is most likely a busted or separated line that is connected to the brake housing(on the front tire assembly). inspect the line for a tight fit. replace the line and coupler if found to be defective.
In most severe cases, the caliber may be faulty.
