Is it coming from the very front of the car? Isn't K&N filter oil pink? Do you have an aftermarket filter on the car you just cleaned? Just and idea...
Yes, I do have a K&N filter but I did not clean it for 5 months already :D
and yes, it is very front of the car !!!
The oil temp and coolant temp are just normal ... that why I am still driving it today !!! :cheers:
It sounds like transmission fluid, assuming that you have an automatic. If you have an A4, then the fluid runs to the radiator for cooling.
If you don't have an A4, then it may be the orange colored anti-freeze that you are seeing.
I got MN6 ... I did touch that pink oil and it is oily !!! I don't think the coolant is oily !!! Well it maybe since I just change my coolant about a month ago but it just start leaking for last couple days !!!
It sounds like your rack and pinion is leaking. I had to have mine replaced
at 1500mi. when it started leaking :(
It is a bit in the middle and tend to be on the driver side a bit !!!
anything is fine since I got GM extended warranty but have to pay 200$ :cry .
Does your car make a loud squeak when you go over a bump in the parking garage??? Mine does make a loud squeak so I will have them check for both if I got the rack and pinion problem !!!
Re: Pink oil leaking ... what is it??? (mike76002)
Mike, if the spots are at the very front of the car is could be DEXCOOL, the coolant that is in your radiator. It feels like oil and is pink in color. :cool:
The DEXCOOL is just cooland brand, isn't it???
So it will be Preston since I just changed it with Preston pink coolant.
I'll keep y'all updated maybe tomorrow. :cheers:
Coolant is either orange or green no matter who makes it. Orange is DEXCOOL or another extended life coolant and green is the regular stuff. If you put in 'pink' coolant then, no ofense, you might be a tad colorblind :bb
As far as the leak goes, you might have spilled some and it took time to work itself to the ground. Time will tell.
