Unknown liquid dripping
So today I thought I could drive my Porsche 98
boxster in the snow with now problem, I didn't even
make it off my road finding myself sliding into a
bank, I'm going to have to get a new front fender,
but I noticed light brown syrupy liquid dripping right
behind where the radiator sits. It stopped and only
leaked a little but I have no clue what to do. I'm not
sure to drive it or not or what the fluid was for or
how to replace it please helpppp.
You probably broke a transmission line by the description of the fluid, and by the location of where the fluid is coming from it looks like it may be the transmission cooler. It would not be a good idea to drive it, you would pump out the trany fluid and burn up the transmission. Get-er towed.
Cars like Boxsters with wide tires that are probably also summer tires really don't do well in snow. I would suggest getting snow tires or a 4WD SUV.
Check your plastic water coolant tank in the rear trunk if empty.
Check all your fluid levels, especially the coolant level. If it is an automatic, it could be transmission fluid. You can't drive like it's always summer, in any car. Get winter rated tires with the snowflake on the sidewall then slow down.
