    Weird Fluid / Leak

    This is a bit weird and I'm not even sure how to explain. But anyway, here is goes. I have a 97 Deville and some mornings when I go out to start it, I notice a puddle of liquid/fluid directly behind my driver side front tire between the wheel well and body of the vehicle. I even seen the drip come out at the end of the wheel well. My first reaction was it was moisture from the night but my car was bone dry all around the body and no other visible run off anywhere else on my car. The fluid has no smell or oily feel to it and as a matter of fact it dries and leaves no stains in my driveway. The only reason I'm asking this question is because it has happened on multiple occasions and its got me puzzled.

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: Weird Fluid / Leak

    Sounds like your windsheild washer resevior has a crack in it or the gasket between the pump and tank is failing, I can't recall which side the tank is on in your car, but I had it happen to an old Eldorado I used to own, sometimes if the fluid freezes the tank will crack due to expansion, hope that helps.
