Differential fluid lubricates the gears in the axles of your car. Your axle can be damaged if your car is leaking differential fluid.
The exhaust pipe expels the vehicle’s exhaust into the atmosphere. It is connected to the muffler and is usually attached by a bracket underneath the rear of the car. Over time the exhaust pipe can corrode and rust out, causing harmful exhaust leaks.
Flooding the Engine
Flooding the engine is when too much fuel is let through the choke into the carburettor. This can happen when your car’s choke needs adjusting.
