If the oil is brown or black it possibly engine oil if it is red or orange it is transmission or steering oil but I recommend to check it by someone more ca

Thanks sirs. A garage said it is transmission oil duct. But I found in handbook only maintenance on steering, engine, coolant, brake fluid, washer, but no transmission oil. Is it a fluid can be top up by owner ?


It is orange. Connected to the radiator at the front.

no in that vehicle you must have tools and knowledge to top up the transmission fluid


Thanks guru. Looked up factory manual yes it is transmission duct. So must do it by pro. Thanks a lot !
