Listed below is the most common issues with fluid leakage:

Red Fluid: Transmission Pan Gasket failure
Dark Brown or Black fluid: Most likely engine drain plug leak or engine oil pan gasket.
Light brown Fluid: Power steering hose failure
Pink or Green Fluid: Water Pump failure or radiator hose or heater hose failure
