Precisely it is difficult to define fuel leak until leak becomes essential and, therefore, easily visible. Fuel tends to evaporate quickly as soon as it contacts with air, especially in a hot motor compartment. Small drops can disappear before you are able to define the place of leak. If you suspect that there is a leak of fuel in the field of a motor compartment, then cool the engine and start it, it cold, at an open cowl so far. Metal elements tend to contract in a cold state, rubber hoses tend to be weakened so any leaks will be more obvious while the engine heats up from start from a cold state.

Liquid in system of the amplifier of steering
The air conditioner (the cooling means)
The air conditioning system is filled with the cooling liquid which is under high pressure. If the air conditioning system is open and depressurized without the special equipment, liquid will immediately evaporate. If liquid contacts with your skin, it can cause a serious frostbite.
The dealer of Peugeot or the specialist in air conditioners has to be immediately warned about all suspicious leakages of the air conditioning system. Leak can be found on noticeable steady decrease in level of cooling liquid.
Emergence of moisture on drain tube of the condenser (gas cooler) under the car right after use of the conditioner – the normal phenomenon also should not be the cause for concern.
Brake fluid – toxic agent with a watery consistence. New liquid almost colourless, but it darkens with time and at intensive use.
Unknown leak of liquids
If there are signs of leak of any liquid, but you cannot distinguish type of liquid or an exact origin, then it is necessary to leave the car for long time and to put a big piece of paper or a rag under the car. It will help to find the place of course of liquid, and also will help to identify the following liquid on color. But keep in mind that some leaks can be shown only at the working engine.
In spite of the fact that the brake system hydraulic, the amplifier of brakes increases the effort made for a brake pedal, using the vacuum in an inlet collector created during the operation of the engine. Vacuum is transmitted to the amplifier through a hose of big section. Any leakage of this hose will reduce efficiency of the brake system.
Besides, many of components, especially components of management of issue, are put in action from the vacuum created in an inlet collector through hoses of small section. Leak in a vacuum hose means that air is sucked in in a hose (but does not leave a hose), and it does leak very difficult for detection. The method of detection consists in using an old vacuum hose as some kind of stethoscope: you keep one end of a hose close to an ear (but not in fish soup), and use other end to explore the area around alleged leak. When the end of a hose directly is over the place of leak, the hissing sound will be clearly heard through a hose. It is necessary to avoid contact with hot and moving details since the engine when checking has to work. Replace all found untight vacuum hoses.
