1. check the hose going into the caliper or if the caliper is leaking. Try tightening the bolts on the oil pan. Be careful that you do not break the bolt head off. Look at the bottom of the radiator to see if the clamp needs tightening. Slowly tighten the clamp. To see where the oil is coming from spray some degreaser and spray it off after about 10 minutes. Then start the vehicle and let it warm up for a few minutes. Use jack stands and wheel chocks before attempting any work. A vehicle falling canruin your day.

Oil leak on back driver side motor in a 1994 dodge caravan


Place a piece of white paper/cardboard on the ground below where the leak is coming from soon after the engine is turned off. This should help you locate where exactly the oil is dripping from, and should help identify what is leaking. If the oil is black/brown/gold, it's probably engine oil. If it's reddish/brown, it's probably transmission fluid. If it's clear, it may be brake fluid or power steering fluid (from the rack/pinion). Check the fluid levels for whatever you determine it may be. If it's engine oil, you may have leaking valve cover gaskets or a leaking rear seal on the engine. If it's transmission fluid, you may have bad transmission cooler lines or leaking from axle seals. Check the master cylinder and brake lines if it's brake fluid, and check the rack/pinion if it's power steering fluid.

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.

Oil leak in driver side rear wheel well for 2005 crown vic. drips down over top of tire and puddles under it.


Hi Don:
Have you checked to see if it's brake fluid?
Is it possible that the slave cylinder is leaking and the fluid is coming ot from the brakes? I can't think of any oil source in that area.

1994 Accord Lx leaking from somewhere in the back by the wheels. It doesnt smell like gas or oil.


Fluid by the back wheels could be an indication of a brake fluid leak. Check the reservoir on the master cylinder for brake fluid level. If it's low, you've identified that you have a leaky brake line and should replace it immediately. If the fluid is full, it's possible that you've a transmission fluid leak that traveled along the undercarriage and is dripping by the back wheels.

For the fastest indication of what the fluid is, check all the fluids, power steering, auto transmission (if equipt) clutch if it's a manual transmission etc

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!!

Put in transmission in feburary.


you will still need add the proper type fluid to proper fill level, get under the truck, clean up transmission so you can visually monitor where the leak is coming from. Chock the wheels, emergency brake set, start and idle vehicle check for leaks. If trans is leaking it will probably be a front seal (oil will drip from small hole in the bottom of bell housing), pan gasket, loose cooling line to radiator, or rear tail shaft leak ( where drive shaft enters the trans.) Don't forget to check the lines for pin holes and the radiator for leaks.
