Q: Oil leak

asked by on

Have an oil leak on the driver front side

My car has 145000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

This can be coming from a variety of places such as an oil pan, oil filter housing, or oil cooler lines. Without physically inspecting the car it may be tough to diagnose. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to diagnose the oil leak and help you repair it accordingly.
