My car is leaking fluid near the front right tire..serviced..driven

Resolved Question:

My car is leaking fluid near the front right tire. Is this something where I need to have the car towed to get it serviced? It makes a thumping noise when driven. I think this was caused by driving over a large bump or pothole.

Have you checked all the fluid levels under the hood? Brake, power steering, etc......

No not yet.. we can do that to see.
Expert:  brownjeff replied 6 years ago.
Yes check and see if any are low. This will be an indication if low of which system to take a look at.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
ok we'll do that. if the fluid is low should we just add more and then take it to the dealer to have it looked at?
Expert:  brownjeff replied 6 years ago.
If not comfortable trying to repair yourself then yes you will want to take it to a dealer. If the brake fluid is low I suggest having it towed as if loosing brake fluid you can loose your brakes.
