    I’ve just noticed after moving my car in the snow there’s bright green spots of fluid near the back end of the car looks like it’s dripping off the exhaust under the car not from the end of the exhaust I checked my coolant it’s on the max and a pinky colour not green any ideas ? Cheers

    This post seems to think it's the green stuff they put in to find a leak in the aircon...?

    I would not worry about it. It could just be some crap you have ran over and it’s now dripping back off

    Do some fluids change colour when exposed to exhaust gases to warn of a problem? or am I just confused by all this snow and cold weather.

    What colour is your brake fluid. And more to the point why is it trying to escape from your exhaust

    Not sure about the colour of the brake fluid but it’s not coming out the end of the exhaust it’s dripping down from near the back box

    What colour is your screenwash? Could be a rear washer pipe split or something?
