Customer: my wife said something was leaking so she put a pan under the car to catch the drip. When I got home and checked it the area under the power steering resivoir and radiator overflow was wet. Looking inside the overflow I saw a thick brown liquid. When I dumped it out into a bucket I found thick brown liquid on top of green coolant. Bad head gasket
