Q: Oil leaking from front of van

asked by on

I have oil running out from the front of the vehicle.

If the oil is coming from the driver’s side front corner, you may have a transmission fluid leak (which is common). If the oil is coming from closer to the left, the fluid may be a number of things. I would recommend having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your home or office to diagnose the leak and make the proper repair.
