Go to the l local auto parts store and they can set you up. Without this you can replace a lot of expensive parts on advice of others and still not solve your problem.
UV tracer dye....I didn't know such a thing existed. Good idea!

Yep, put on a pair of crusty old coveralls, jack up the car, and crawl around under there armed with a pair of safety glasses and a couple spray cans of engine degreaser. Hose 'er down good, let it sit, and hose 'er down with water. Drip dry, start, look for leaks, drive, look for leaks, fix leaks.
