Clear fluid under the hood can only be a few things. it could be water either from rain or condensation, perhaps on the air conditioning system, not a problem, warm humid outside air will give up some moisture when it contacts the cold a/c lines. it could be power steering fluid, check the reservoir and see if it is low. the power steering pump is belt driven and it is mounted on the front of the engine. or it could be brake fluid, seems most likely. you can take the cap off the master cylinder and see if it is low, wipe it off first so you don't get any dirt in the fluid. there is a rigid line that carries fluid to the brake assembly and a flexible line that allows the wheels to move when you steer the car. when they leak it is usually the flex line that leaks. it is usually pretty easy to find, there will be a clean spot where the leak is coming from. be careful with brake fluid, it will eat the paint right off your car. hope that helps

1992 buick lesabre brakes soft and i hear air wen i stop on them i hear air but the fluid is full need help could a cap somewhere be loose

Do you have to add fluid occasionally? If so, it is a leak, albeit a slow one, which means a rotted line or a leaky wheel cylinder... maybe even a master. If you see fluid, a light, clear oil on the ground, that's a good indicator. ALSO- lift the carpet on the driver side and look for a leak from the master cylinder into the car. (That one is often overlooked.)
If no leaks, look at the big hose that comes off the engine and into the power boost on the firewall and behind the master cylinder. A vacuum leak makes a hissing or sucking noise and reduces braking capacity

Why rearend leaks by both wheel areas 2003 lesabre?

this is a front wheel drive car there fore there is no rear end like a rear wheel drive. the fluid leak at the wheels is probably brake wheel cylinder/caliper or brake flex hose. check brake fluid level if its down then check for brake fluid leak if not then you will have to check the rear area for some other fluid leak.

Where to put wiper fluid?

the wiper fluid container is located on the right side as your facing the front of your car... it should be a big plastic container marked washer fluid. in my Buick it is right by the master brake cylinder, just hooked on the right side of your car.... lift your hood, as you face the front, look for a large plastic container marker, washer fluid. add fluid.

Where is the fuel filter on a 1992 buick regal

Driver side in front of the rear wheel. Follow the fuel line under the doors. I think it has a nut on one side and a clip on the other.

I simply can not see a transmission fluid access. I just bought the auto and need to check fluids and such.

Is this car front or rear wheel drive? If rear wheel drive it will be on the passenger sive of engine between engine and firewall( tough to see ).If it is front wheel drive the it will be on the drivers side towards the rear on engine compartment.

Power steering fluid leaking;

Fill it up. Have a helper hold the steering wheel to all the way to the stop while you check for leaks. Especially the high pressure hose.
