GENERAL INFORMATION

Existence of pools on a floor of a garage or the engine or obvious humidity under a cowl or on the lower part of the car assumes leak which needs to be found and to eliminate immediately. Can be sometimes difficult to define the place of leak, especially, if the motor compartment is strongly polluted. Leak of oil or liquid can be also demolished by an air stream under the car back, making a false impression of where leak is.

Oil pallet

Engine oil can filter from a drain stopper.

Oil from the filter

Oil can filter through the basis of an oil filter.

Oil from the transmission

Oil can filter through consolidation on the internal ends of power shafts.

Antifreeze

Antifreeze leak often leaves a transparent raid.

Brake fluid

Leaks in wheels can be only from brake fluid.

Liquid for the amplifier of steering

Liquid for the amplifier of steering can filter from connections of a pipe on the shelf of management.
