Oil leak, coolant leak, and ps fluid leak...

So, my lude is leaking all of these.. There's always a few drips on the ground wherever I go and I have to add about a quart of oil every 2 months or so. Anyway, I got under my car today (and I have to say that I don't know anything about cars..) and found where the coolant is dripping at and some weird stuff on my oil pan. Anyway I hope you guys can help me figure out where they're leaking from or what all the white stuff is on my oil pan. Thanks.





These are from the engine bay. I doubt these will help but threw them in.

Re: Oil leak, coolant leak, and ps fluid leak...

These pictures are just too blurry to see anything well, sorry man. You need clearer pictures or at least give us an idea of where/what angle you were coming from.

I.E.

This is from the front passenger wheel about 45 degrees downward on the engine.

Either that, or get some better pictures.

Alright, sorry. My crappy phone is the only camera I have right now. The attached thumbnails are from the drivers side looking at the oil pan. The other ones are from the passenger side looking up and towards the middle. I think that's the transmission? Sorry for the crap pics.

By the color of the fluid, there's a chance it MAY only be a PS leak.
Download the Helms manual, get familiar with the PS system, and try tracking it til you see where its coming from.
