First thing I would do is make sure that the fluid you are seeing is not brake fluid but I suspect you would notice a spongy brake pedal. If not then it sounds like what you are seeing is probably water leaking out of the weep hole in the muffler. Modern day catalytic convertors are designed to reduce the emissions coming from the engine into carbon dioxide and water before it leaves the tail pipe. Occasionally this water will condense inside the muffler and leak out of the weep hole. What you are witnessing is most likely normal operation for the vehicle.

2003 dodge Intrepid 2.7l oil leak above rear main seal after running 20 minutes


rear main seal usually only leaks when the car is running. though oil will slowy drip off afterwards. now the best way to tell is to remove the heat sheild that covers the flywheel and look at it and at the flywheel . is the oil only on the engine side of the cover or is it inside the cover and on the fly wheel. the rear main seal will leak into the bellhousing and on the fly wheel the oil pan gasket will leak on the front of the heat sheild.

Oil leak


First of all you must locate the oil leak if is from top rocker covers, timing side crank front oil seal,rear crank shaft oil seal? Is it from the oil filter?,or is it from the front lower wishbones inner bush. That bush is filled with hydraulic fluid,and most probably that is your oil leak..If is from that bush the thing you do is just to renew the wishbone.

I dont know much about the impala steering but most rack and pinion setups are the same . i had a loud clicking noise in my Camry when on full lock and it got woset I though also rack n pinion ,but it turned out a high pressure hose from the power steering box had a leak . So check fluild in power steer box and check it is not leaking onto tierods there should be no fluid in a tie rod end boot . If the fluid in the box is low or none top it up with auto trans fluid and see if it stops the clicking noise

My blazer is leaking fluid from the right rear tire area . and i hear a strange knocking from my rear end


The leaking could be from your brake line, can you tell what color the fluid is and the texture? is is slippery or feels more like water? If it is brake fluid leaking that means you have a broke or busted line or a caliper/brake cylinder leaking which needs to be fixed quickly.

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!!

REAR AXLE PROBLEMS ON 1997 DODGE RAM


did you check your transaxle fluid level? drain/replace transaxle fluid dont forget the friction modifier additive. it is required for proper function of your limited slip. signs of a failing differential are metal shavings in the bottom of the case, worn ring/pinion grooves. the other issue with your shift problem could be a failing shift solenoid, however, a vacuum leak will cause crappy shifts because your trans relies on good vacuum to shift.

OIL LEAK 2002 dodge intrepid


Hi there!

It realy would be best to get it up on ramps to find out where the leak is.

Did it start at the same time as the flat tyre - i.e. did you go over something? if so, it may have stressed the steering (if power steering) and caused a seal failure. Or it may be that the sump has recieved a blow, causing the sump pan seal to leak a bit - or even crack.

If the oil is black - it's probably the sump, if lighter in colour, it is probably steering rack fluid or brake fluid.

Check the oil levels to see which one it is. If there is a large leak, or the brake fluid or steering fluid is leaking, the car is best recovered for repair, as driving it is dangerous.


Hope this helps. If it leads to a solution, please take a moment to rate as Fixya! Thank you.
