Cylinder Head Gaskets
It may have been a minute since you last checked the underside of your car for leaks. And if you have an asphalt driveway, stains can be difficult to spot. So, take a big piece of cardboard and put it underneath your car. After a day or two, remove it and look at what you see. Are there any stains on the cardboard? Could they be engine oil, transmission fluid, coolant, or something else? Not matter what they are, it is best to go ahead and take your vehicle in for service so that it can be checked out.
