Why Is My Car Leaking Water?

car leaking fluids

If you are driving on Boca Raton roads and notice that your car might be leaking water, it’s usually not a serious issue. Water leakage typically is a result of the air conditioning system producing condensation. If you see small puddles of water towards the back of the engine compartment or dripping a little from the tailpipe, that’s normal. However, there are other types of car leaks that can be more serious. It’s important to be able to identify the leak and what it means, so you know whether a trip to your local authorized service center.

Water Leaking From Under Cars: Identifying the Cause

If you notice water leaking from your car in Delray Beach, there are some steps you can follow to find where it’s coming from.

  • Place a sheet of paper under the leak. If the liquid is blue, green, or yellow, it is very likely coolant, not water.
  • If you notice a fair amount of water and white smoke coming out of your exhaust, this may mean that a gasket has blown, which is causing coolant to be burned along with the fuel.
  • To eliminate the possibility of leaking engine oil or leaking coolant, check your fluid levels.
  • If the liquid is a light blue or green color and dripping out near the front of the car by the tires, the leak could also be coming from a windshield wiper fluid reservoir. If water made its way into the reservoir and froze in the winter, the expanding ice could have cracked the reservoir. It’s possible the leak is coming from a cracked windshield wiper fluid reservoir.
