Those innocent-looking drips can be symptoms of multiple problems, like brake trouble. Brake fluid is crucial to a car’s brake system. If your car is leaking brake fluid, your brakes will no longer function properly and eventually will stop working altogether. When ignored, that brake fluid leak (a simple fix for an auto repair shop) could cause serious safety hazards. Nobody wants to have their brakes stop working in an emergency, so brake fluid leaks are yet another reason to bring your leaking or dripping car to an auto repair shop, where quick and simple fixes can prevent future costly repairs and possibly even save lives.
When a car has leaks or drips, it could leaking a number of things like transmission fluid, power steering fluid, brake fluid, coolant, oil, or just some windshield washer fluid.
