To identify what is leaking from your car, you don’t need an expert or a laboratory analysis of the sample. Just looking at the puddle will give you much-needed information, and you can assess the source from that. Through the liquid’s color, you can identify most of its traits.
Blue: If the color is blue, it’s most likely windshield wiper fluid. Some of the modern Hondas have started using blue coolant.
Clear: Clear fluid can be AC condensation (thin like water) or the brake fluid that is not used much. If the brake fluid is used, it’s darker in color.
Dark Brown: This is most probably brake fluid or motor oil.
Green, Orange, or Yellow: This can be antifreeze or the radiator coolant.
Light Brown: Most probably gear lubricant or newer motor oil. Old transmission fluid turns brown.
Pink or Red: Transmission Fluid or power steering fluid.
Orange: AC condensation, transmission fluid, or antifreeze. All these fluids leave colors when aged.
