1.9.3. Detection of a place of a leak


Oil pallet

Oil can leak from a drain stopper of the pallet.

Oil from the filter

Oil can leak from under an oil filter.

Oil from a check point

Transmission oil can leak from epiploons of half shafts in an exit place from differential.


The antifreeze leak often can be determined by such crystal deposits.

Brake fluid

Dribble of brake fluid leaves traces on the tire.

Steering hydraulic actuator liquid

The liquid leak from a hydraulic actuator of a steering can develop from unions near the steering mechanism.

Formation of pools on a car parking lot, liquid traces under a cowl or on details in the lower part of the car indicate leaks and need of search of the reason. Sometimes it is very difficult to define a dribble place, especially, if the motor compartment and the engine in itself are covered with dirt. Smudges of oil or liquid in the lower part of the car can communicate an air stream back at the movement and mislead rather true place of a leak.
