Question about 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe
On the highway, a car in front of me kicked up a blown truck tire piece and it traveled to hit my front drivers side bumper,cracking it under the light.
It traveled down and under my car but I kept going. Grateful I didn't have tire damage myself - I parked,worked and went home. The next day I noticed an blackish oil leak and later on a red oil leak. I am having it looked at on Tuesday. A light came on the dash board right upper side. It looks like a green jelly fish traveling to the right. I don't have an owners manual for this car. What is that? Is there a way to download certain pages in a manual now? Where do I go to look for that?
Is there anything else you recommend to look out for ?
We never encountered running over a tire before and we've been driving for a bout 35 years.
Thank you for your advise. Carol-Lynn M
I would highly recommend getting it checked out by either a shop or someone you personally know and trust that has auto knowledge... the black oil leak is most likely engine oil... the light and thin aluminum manufacturers use now days can break under just the right conditions... heat and stress... when the tire piece went under your car it may have hit your oil pans(engine and transmission.. red oil) and caused either the pan gaskets to leak.. or maybe even the pans them selves to get cracks... hopefully it's just the gaskets... not too hard to fix and ALOT less costly then new pans... as for the light .. no clue what it's supposed to be...but good luck
