2002 Ford Escape oil like substance leak from middle/back of vehicle ?

Asked by Dec 18, 2016 at 10:23 AM about the 2002 Ford Escape

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi , I have a 2002 Ford Escape that runs great other than an oily looking
leak near the middle or back of my vehicle. All of my fluid levels (oil ,
transmission, water ) are reading normal but this leak is pretty bad. Seems
to be worse if I have parked on a hill and then park in my driveway > This
morning I went out to my carport and the puddles have dried into a
yellowish greenish looking almost powdery looking puddle. A few months
ago I had work done on the rear differential. Help please ! PS : it's a 4
wheel drive.

Yellow fluid is anti-freeze. You need to have the car put up on a rack so it can be inspected for leaks.
