Not uncommon for brown fluid to show up when the brake master cylinder is leaking out of the rear seal. If you are not experiencing any brake issues now, YOU WILL!! Double check the resevoir under the hood for proper level. This uses DOT 3 fluid from any autoparts store. You will end up replacing the master cylinder. If this continues, even with refilling the resevoir, will fail and can cause a very serious condition where you will not be able to stop!! If youy need further instructions on replacement, let me know.

1993 MARK VIII HAVE OIL OR TRANS LEAK ? MINUTE I START CAR, DRIVERS SIDE. HAVE TO SHUT IT OFF. LEAKS BAD. CANT SEE WHERE ITS COMING FROM ANY IDEAS


Would recommend to steam clean complete engine compartment, to include the bottom.

Next, top your fluids and place clean towels or rags. Start your car until leak is present. With flash light Che k where from. If fluid is redesh in color, it's transmission fluid. If it's dark brown or black, engine oil.

Check bottom of oil and transmission pans for possible cracks or damage.

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.

Underneath driver side floor mat is damp. I don't


if it is slippery and stinky, your heater core is leaking. otherwise you have a leak around your windshield and rainwater is coming in and not drying out as it is under the mat. very hard to track down, get some clear aquarium sealer and get to work.

There is a rubbing sound coming from the drivers side tire, and when the gas is pushed hard, a loud thump comes from the drivers side. The explorer is all-wheel drive. Underneath, the entire driver's side...


The thump is from the worn ball joints. You will need to determine the type of fluid by getting some on your finger and smelling it to determine what it is. It could be power steering fluid (reddish brown) could be gear oil (greenish), brake fluid (clear) or oil (brownish black). Check your oil, power steering fluid and brake fluid reservoir to see if any of those are low. Check your transmission fluid with the Explorer running, wipe the stick and recheck. Then check the gear box by removing plug and sticking your pinky in to see if you can feel the fluid which should be up level with the plug. Rubbing sound can be a bad tire, sway link that's broken, bad joint on the front axle, or even a failing wheel bearing. Whoever does your motor vehicle inspections (state inspectors) may be the best kind of mechanic for you to consult with regarding suspension issues such as ball joints and bearings. They use a jack and prybar to determine what can move in a way it should NOT be able to move and a state inspection in my state only costs about $12 and that's about the cheapest you can get a diagnosis for anything wrong with a car.

Very difficult at times to get into gear on my 2007 grand vitara. At times when in gear cannot change gear at all but other times moves through gears freely. What is the problem?


if this is an automatic transmission, check your transmission fluid level. The fluid should be red, if it is orange/ brown colour and smells burnt. Will need to be changed. Take it somewhere to have fluid and filter changed. If you are mechanically inclined try flushing the fluid through the transmission. Disconnedt the driver side transmission cooling rubber line from bottom of rad. place the end of the hose in a large container. Put parking brake on, turn on vehicle and put into drive. the transmision fluid with pump out into container. Watch how fast it pumps out. When the fluids stops coming out, shut off engine and put back into park. Next drain remaining fluid out of transmission pan. There is 9/19 or 14mm bolt for this on bottom side of transmission. When this is done, refill transmission and repeat. This time you are flushing all the extra **** out of the transmission. Again check thre flow rate of the fluid coming out. It will come out faster this time. When finished replace transmission fluid again with new clean fluid. This should help free your shifting. When starting the engine for the first time. Put the brake on and put the shifter in 1st for a few seconds , then 2nd and drive, then reverse. This will also allow the fluid to begin to circulate.
If the transmission fluid was dark brown or black it would be wise to replace filter when you finish flushing transmission. To do this you have to disconnect the 4 wheel drive shaft to get pan off. Try just flushing the transmission first. I will look again in couple of days for your reply.

How is the floormat on the drivers side attached to the floor rug? There seems to be two metal rings, one in the floor rug and one in the flloor mat. They are not snaps, just rings How is the mat attached...


There is a small plastic hook attached to the floor that goes through the metal ring on the floormat to keep it in place. the hook's open side should face the back of the car, so just pull the mat towards the drivers seat and it should come loose. No clips or anything, just that one hook and ring.
