    Angry Now I'm REALLY PISSED OFF!

    Got my car back last week having spent close to £700 on parts and labour I was just happy to the car back.
    Took it to work thursday morning where it sat in the barn for 2 days as it usually does. started first time, had a lovely drive home.
    Parked the F**KING thing on the drive and 2 hours later there is this mess underneath!


    had abit of a fit on the drive and decided to have a prod n a taste! (tasted horrible)
    so had a prod about and I THINK its power steering fluid.
    Help and ideas on what the hell this could be all about would be greatly appreciated! I have not moved the car or tried to drive it yet.
    So again i may be carless on the weekend!
    im proper pissed!

    Rather than guess what it could be check all your levels. Unless the cars been moved I doubt it's power steering fluid as that will all be at the back of the engine bay

    If its sweet in taste then itll be coolant mate, power steering fluid is genrally red in colour.

    Major shitter that take it to the garage they probably didnt tighten a hose or something, they should have a 30 day warantee on their work anyway

    Hope it gets sorted jimbo!

    And that does look as if its around the aircon compressor/condensor, test if the AC works.

    I checked all my levels etc! theres a bottle behind the fuse box against the bulk head and its the same as whats in that.
    Had a new aircon pump 7-8 months ago!
    They did do the water pump and cam belt change!
    its a biatch!

    Thats the power steering fluid but thats not normaly that colour.

    Does the power steering feel ok and does the aircon work ok as it looks like the oil from the aircon system
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    could it be anyting to do with having used the air con? Quite often cars leak clear fluid when the AC's been on? Maybe just the dye in the noral leak?

    If car hasnt moved and it has come from the front, near the radiator, that could be a good chance that will be aircon system.
    Have you had look under the bonnet and engine to see where leak coming from?
