i was walking behind my car and i just noticed a trail of purple liquid, only drops of it though, not like a continuous trail, does anyone have any idea what this may be?

another thing to add that might have to do with this, is my clutch definately felt different tonight, i cant really describe it any better, it just felt not normal when i was driving it. i have an 02 type s

I think some DOT 5 silicone brake fluid is purple, too. Maybe you or a previous owner put some in the slave cylinder? The DOT 5 is a lot more compressible than DOT 3 (factory recommended), so if you do have DOT 5, you should really go back to DOT 3 fluid...unless you like mushy clutch and brakes.

yeah but DOT5 will put some damange on the system. the previous owner would of had to of gone way out of his way to put it in, unless he was just a fool and felt he could top off his master cylinder with some.
i myself use dot 4 =o
