I have a leak coming from the drivers side of my engine of coolant its coming out of a hole above the trans any idea what that hole is or what goes there


hi Kemal.
  1. Park your vehicle overnight on a clean patch of pavement or a large, clean piece of white paper.Either tape some sheets of paper together or buy a roll of plain white commercial wrapping paper. Newspaper is too absorbent and can change the color of the stains.
  2. Place marks on the paper.
    Show where each of the four wheels is resting, and indicate the front and rear ends of the vehicle.
  3. In the morning, move the vehicle and look for small puddles or traces of liquid on the ground or paper.
    Touch and smell each puddle or trace of liquid.
Here's how to decipher the evidence:
  • If it's clear, watery, and under the air conditioner: It's probably normal condensation if you've used the air conditioner recently.
  • If it's black or dark brown, greasy, and located under the engine area:It's probably oil. Figure out which part of the vehicle was over the spot. Look under the hood around the oil filter and the engine and under the vehicle for leaks around the oil drain plug, the crankcase, and the oil pan below it.
  • If it's thick, black or tan oily liquid: Gear oil may be leaking from a manual transmission, the differential, an axle, or the steering gears. Any of these leaks needs immediate attention.
  • If it's red, pink, or reddish-brown and greasy and you have an automatic transmission: It's probably transmission fluid. Check the transmission dipstick, and if the level is low, top it off with the proper transmission fluid. Then check the dipstick again in a day or two. If it's low again, have a professional check the transmission to make sure that the seals are intact.
  • If it's watery or slippery; green, red, blue, or yellow; and is coming from under the radiator or engine: It's probably coolant. Check the radiator, pressure cap, engine, and hoses for leaks.
  • If it's oily; pink, red, or clear; and you find it toward the front bumper (usually on the driver's side): It's probably power-steering fluid. The power-steering system is sealed and shouldn't lose fluid. If it's a light-colored or clear fluid: It may be brake fluid. Even if the leaks have dried, the stains should be visible. Leaky brakes are too dangerous to leave unattended. Have a professional repair any brake fluid leaks immediately.
  • If it smells like rotten eggs: It's battery acid. Avoid getting it on your hands or clothes and have the battery replaced.
  • If it smells like gasoline: It probably is! If the smell is coming from under the hood, check around the fuel pump and the fuel injectors - or the carburetor if your vehicle has one. If the leak seems to be under the center of the vehicle, check the fuel lines. If it's under the rear end, check the fuel tank.

I had the in tank fuel pump replaced, but now can smell petrol from inside the car. why is this and is the car safe to drive?


it could be a fuel leakage or lingering smell from the mechanic getting inside the car. gas is very powerful smell so clean the car out and have air fresheners. if the smell persist even after then have the car taken back to check for any fuel leakage.

Leaking water after stopping


Liquids in an auto..... Antifreeze (greenish/clear, watery, with slight oil feel to it, smells somewhat sweet), Power Steering Fluid (very thin oil, usually red tinted), Brake Fluid (very thin oil, clear), Transmission Fluid (very thin, red and kinda of sweet smelling), Motor Oil (amber colored or black, medium viscosity, usually smells acidic), Washer Fluid (usually water). Only other fluid is condensation that drains from the air conditioning drain pan after driving the car and the air conditioner has been on.

It can only be one of the above, really need a lot more information, to even begin to make a guess.

Smell and fluid leakage under engine


Alright, anitfreeze is going to be typically green or orange in color and tranny fluid is going to be Red. Oil is the only dark fluid in your motor. But you say it smells like gas or burning making me wonder if it is your oil or not?

When i fill up the tank of the 1993 cutl. cierra, a strong gas smell comes from the car...


It's the gas cap tightly in place? Did you overfill it? Can you see any sigh of leakage?

Some times when we overfill our gas tank, the spilled gas gets into cracks or holes in the body of the vehicle and takes a while to evaporate.

If the smell is still strong after one hour, take it to the shop to have it checked for leaks.

Thermostat/radiator warning light comes on every 3 days - I add fluid to the overflow tank but it is empty after 2-3 days. what's the deal?


Your water pump is leaking, have it repaired immediately or it will seize up, snap your timing belt, and ruin the engine.

Leaking


Is your car a standard transmission or automatic? Could be transmission fluid. Does it look or feel like oil?
