What car fluids do: Fluids, including engine oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, antifreeze/coolant and power steering fluid, keep the vital parts of your vehicle lubricated and working like it should. Engine oil  is necessary for the total greasing of your engine and components, and must be inspected and replaced regularly. Transmission fluid keeps your transmission running smoothly and prevents slipping. Brake fluid helps the braking system by transferring force into pressure. Antifreeze and coolant help to keep your engine from overheating, and the lines from freezing in lower temperatures. Lastly, power steering fluid helps in the power steering function of your vehicle.
Stoughton, MA Automotive Fluid Check

If you experience a leak in fluid, here are some tips to help identify the fluid thats leaking:

Radiator fluid: Radiator fluid is bright green and very slippery. It must be checked frequently.
Antifreeze: Antifreeze, or coolant, is mostly green and is hazardous to not only your pets but is a significant health danger to mammals. Antifreeze must be checked and filled with every oil change.
Brake fluid: Brake fluid is a light yellow and can change to a foggy brown color scheme when mixed with water. 
Power steering: Power steering fluid has a yellow tint. It can easily be checked and filled with oil changes.
Transmission Fluid: Automatic transmission fluid has a deep red shade. It has a sharp distinct odor and is thick in structure. Transmission fluid needs to be changed about every 30,000 miles. A lack of transmission fluid can cause a transmission to stick or slip.
Windshield Washer fluid: Windshield washer fluid can be any color - from brilliant blue, orange, to pink or yellow. It has the consistency of water and could smell rather pleasant. 
Motor Oil: Motor oil may be brilliant or dark brown depending on how often you change it. Frequently changed motor oil will be light brown, while aged motor oil will be a darker tone. You must have your motor oil changed every 3000-5000 miles.
Gasoline:Gasoline is one of the most recognizable out of all the fluid. It has an amber shade and you will probably recognize its incredibly unique odor. It is highly combustible, so make sure to prevent any type of open fires: lighters, matches, or cigarettes.
