Waking up to puddles, stains or splotches beneath where you park your car sends some shivers down your spine. It ought to because you do not know what is happening under the hood. Could it be someone malicious who punctured a few of fluid hoses? Did someone forget to tightly close the oil pan? The train of thoughts is just overwhelming, and it does not help when you have no trusted auto mechanic you can give a call.

Why the do vehicles leak?
It is not you alone; many other auto owners are equally alarmed when they notice spots or puddles of oil or fluids on the driveway? How? No way, the system is supposed to be sealed. That would be your reaction when you first notice fluid on the ground. Calm down and let the experts do some explaining. Yes you are right, the system is supposed to be sealed and leakproof. But this is only true for relatively new vehicles. Once you hit the rough roads, and the unforgiving weather; tear and wear comes in full swing. Valves, hoses, vents, and any other components carrying liquids lose their tightness. What you see next are leaking of all natures. At first it starts slowly and gets worse over time. Now that wasn’t hard to comprehend, or is it?
What could be causing the leaks?
Now you know why and how. But what is causing them? We thought this information would help you understand the leaking problems better:
- Broken or loose fluid or oil filler caps
- Punctured windshield bottle
- Misaligned threads
- Worn out hoses, oil filter, pistons, or gasket
- Poor connection
- Damage on the oil pan
We cannot put a definite number to the reasons why your car looses fluid. But we can for sure find every cause of a leak and seal it for good. One of the golden rules from the unwritten book of auto ownership is to never sit on problems hoping they will go away. Leaks are notorious, and they get bigger and cause more damage if they are not fixed on the earliest instance. Langley European Auto Services is all you need to put an end to the draining.
