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.

What our customers are saying...

The best auto repair company in Bakersfield!

I went in to have my car checked out as my “service engine soon” light came on. The professional, friendly, organized, and well trained staff took care of my problem. They replaced my spark plug coil for a decent price, and made sure I was satisfied before I left the store. Don was friendly, professional, well-educated, and made me feel welcomed. The owner, Richard, was great as well. I will be back to use this auto mechanic shop for all of my car problems, and they are truly an honest auto repair company. – Eric H. in Bakersfield, CA
