Noticed the 4Runner’s steering was groaning a bit this afternoon. Being unsure of the fluid’s history I checked when I got home and found that it wasn’t old, it just wasn’t.
In looking for the leak I found quite a bit on the floor under the rack (which was all very oily). I’ve cleaned it off and will refill with ATF (per the cap) after dinner; I’ll check back tomorrow to see if I can tell where it’s coming from. Hopefully nothing too much of a pain.
A coworker was complaining that I “leaked oil all over” his driveway (accompanied by a picture of a tiny spot) last week, which I called bullshit because the oil level hasn’t changed at all since I changed it months ago; so this should be a slow leak; I drove ~250 miles this past weekend and it wasn’t until this afternoon that it got this low. Technically it is an oil, but not the oil which was implicit.
