Engine Oil Leak 

Motor oil keeps the moving parts of your engine moving freely. This helps reduce excessive heat and friction. Oil is usually an amber color, but it continues to get darker as it ages, turning dark brown and even black. An engine oil leak can fall anywhere in the range, depending on when the leak occurs.  

Coolant Leak 

Your coolant works to keep your engine from overheating. Typically, a coolant (also known as antifreeze) leak is easy to spot. It has a light green color making it stand out from the other fluids in your vehicle.
