Why is My Car Leaking Water?

car leak
You’re going to be concerned if you notice your car leaking water, but you probably aren’t looking at anything serious. If you’re sure that it’s water leaking from under the car instead of another fluid, it may be due to one of the following issues:

  • The condensation created by your air conditioning system is creating small puddles near the back of your vehicle’s engine compartment.
  • Water near the tailpipe caused by exhaust condensation is leaking – it usually goes away after the muffler warms up.

Of course, there can be more serious issues than water leaking from under the car. Read on to explore the more pressing issues associated with fluid leaks and feel free to contact our service department for additional advice.

What Fluid Is Leaking From Under Your Car?

Car leaking water? If you’re not sure, place a sheet of paper under the vehicle. If the fluid isn’t clear, it’s not water. Here’s how to judge what fluid is leaking by its color:

  • Red: Power Steering Fluid or Transmission Fluid
  • Orange: Radiator Coolant or Transmission Fluid
  • Yellow: Radiator Coolant
  • Green: Antifreeze from the Water Pump, Hoses, or Radiator
  • Blue: Windshield Wiper Fluid
  • Dark Brown: Brake Fluid or Older Engine Oil
  • Light Brown: Gear Lubricant or Newer Engine Oil
  • Pink: Transmission Fluid or Power Steering Fluid

If you notice any of those fluids collected under your vehicle after you’ve parked on your driveway in Beverly Hills or stopped at a parking lot in Bel Air, you should visit the Jaguar Los Angeles service center without delay.

Top Causes There’s Water Leaking From Under Your Car

Is the car leaking water? Here are some clues to where it’s coming from:

  • If there’s more than a little water coming from the exhaust, it could be a blown gasket. This usually means coolant is also leaking, so check the level to ensure you’re not running low – that could mean an unexpected breakdown next time you’re outside Los Angeles.
  • If the water leaking from under your car is due to a cracked windshield wiper fluid reservoir, you should find water pooling by the front tires.
  • Coolant is typically easy to spot because of its color, but you can always check the coolant level just to make sure. If it’s low, be sure to bring it to our service center to have a certified technician inspect and fix your vehicle.

Our service technicians know your vehicle inside and out, so be sure to schedule your service appointment with us if you suspect a serious problem.
