Q: Q: Oil leaking

asked by on

I have an oil leak.

Hi there. The engine, transmission, and power steering system all use an oil type fluid and the systems are prone to leaks, especially in the case of poor maintenance. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, inspect the oil leak on your vehicle and suggest an appropriate repair.
