    I'm trying to order some capacitors but I don't know what type they are. Not that they are ceramics or electrolytes, but the standard type, low impedance/ESR type or High reliability type, stuff like that. Does anyone know what types my capacitors are and how can I know what types they are?

    Yes, all those brown bulging aka faulty ones are electrolytics

    they will have uF value, voltage and temperature rating on them
    if they are only 85C temp ones, get 105 C temp ones instead

    You want to look for 105C rated, low ESR, electrolytic (aluminium) capacitor.
