Red stuff from air con pump?
Yesterday I noticed a pool of red fluid about a cup full underneath the oil filter. I went under to check and saw that it was trickling along by the oil filter there and along what I now know to be the air con pump.
It's red cherry aid sort of stuff, classic power steering fluid. I checked the PAS reservoir and found that it was on minimum, but the fluid was darker and dirtier than the stuff dripping out underneath.
Te car, a 2.0 JTS has been up on the ramp in the local garage today, who are excellent, the PAS fluid has been changed, and while there's been some talk of a smallish leak coming from a gator on the steering rack, despite running the car for a long time today nothing else seems to have dripped out.
Any thoughts as to what this fluid could be, and where it could be coming from?
Thanks for reading.
