Why Is My Car Leaking Water?

Service Technician Working Under Vehicle

Why is my car leaking water in Buhler? If your car is leaking water, it’s usually not a serious problem. The car’s air conditioning system creates condensation whenever it’s running. It’s normal to see small puddles of water near the back of the engine compartment. Furthermore, water near the tailpipe is usually exhaust condensation which will go away after your muffler warms up.

However, there can be more serious issues associated with leaking vehicle fluids. Feel free to stop by the service center at Allen Samuels Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram near Nickerson for a vehicle inspection.

Water Leaking from Under Car: Causes

Do you have water leaking from under the car? Are you wondering why your car is leaking water? Follow these steps to find where the leak is coming from.

  • Place a sheet of paper under the leak. If the fluid is something other than water, the color will show up. If the water leaking from under the car is blue, green, or yellow, it’s probably coolant, not water.
  • If more than a small amount of water is coming from your exhaust, a blown gasket may be causing coolant to be burned along with fuel. That will lead to large amounts of water and white smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe.
  • While the coolant is usually easy to spot due to its color, you can always check the level to make sure. If it’s low, you’ll want to bring your car to a certified service centerlike the one at Allen Samuels Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.
  • It’s possible the leak is coming from a cracked windshield wiper fluid reservoir. That can be caused by using water in your windshield wiper fluid. The water freezes in the reservoir, expanding and causing cracks in the plastic container. You can tell it’s windshield wiper fluid if it is light blue or light green in color. Wiper fluid leaks can usually be found near the front tires.

If the cause is anything other than condensation, it’s worth visiting Allen Samuels Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram near Newton for an inspection.
