Why Fluid Leaks Can Be A Cause For Concern

Let’s talk about why you should be concerned about fluid leaks in your car or truck. Fluid leaks in your car or truck no matter how small or noticeable can and should be a cause for alarm. These leaks can cause major problems if not addressed.

Why fluid leaks are a bad thing.

Fluid leaks in your vehicle gradually decrease the levels of fluid. Expensive repairs can come when the leak is ignored and the low fluid level isn’t detected. This can turn into a part failing due to a lack of fluid. For example, low coolant levels can cause the engine to overheat with a risk of engine damage.

Low engine oil accelerates internal engine wear and can cause expensive engine failure.



We rebuild gears and bearings in differentials due to damage from low oil levels because seals are leaking. Low power steering fluid levels due to leaks will cause cavitation in the power steering pump. Shortening life of the pump. And, if the fluid is low enough can make the car hard to steer.

Some leaks are obviously an immediate problem, others are not, but all leaks lead to low fluid levels that can cause parts to fail. It’s best not to ignore the leaks. At G&G Auto Repair we inspect leaks for free, and we inspect for leaks everytime you bring your vehicle in for service. If we find something, we’ll talk to you about it, and figure out what’s the best course of action.
