All the engine’s systems are supposed to be closed and not leak, so unless it's just condensation from your a/c working, then it's best to check how severe the leak is, and check your fluids levels before driving the car to get checked.

Motor oil, depending on if it is a petrol or diesel engine can be from a clear brownish color to an almost black color. Power steering and transmission fluid are oily and usually a reddish color. Coolant is more watery and can be a variety of colors from green, pink, blue, green, red, orange.

It varies dependending on the make and model as well as what level of overhaul. Until the engine is taken apart it is not possible to give an accurate quote of the severity of the internal damage. Initially we will charge for a disassembly and diagnosis time. From here we can give an accurate quote in terms of what parts need to be replaced or repaired.
