View Full Version : Water leaking (i think)

04-30-09, 08:54 AM
So I got home last night backed into my parking spot and got out and noticed drips following under my car... Looks and smells like water. so Ilook under the car and see a little puddle forming. fearing the worst I grab a flash light and look and smell it still looks/smells like water... but the strange thing was it was coming from near the back end of the oil pan area. Nowthe AC was on but I was thinking, condensation from all the other cars I have had dripped near the front of the car...

was to late to jack it up and get into it so went inside, this morning no evidence of leak.. Drove car to work, monitored the all the temps and everything looked normal.

Anybody got any ideas was this just condensation from the AC

Only thoughts I have would be A/C. Someone will chime in with better knowledge, but I suggest keep monitoring it and if you spot it again, snap some pictures and that will help us diagnose.

Yea i took pics when i thought i had a leak of some sort. There is a tube i think on the drivers side, would be almost directly below your AC controls. I thought i had a bad heater core or something, but turns out it was just the ac. I'll try to remember the pics tonight

I had a small leak from my water pump about a year or so ago now. Very hard to find, but could definitely tell that there was a coolant leak due to the smell. Took it in and dealership found the leak and replaced the water pump under warranty. No troubles since. Good luck finding and fixing yours.

Here are some pics, not very helpful pics, but pics! I put the red arrow pointing at the "tube" i believe to have been the source of the water. Since it's water and not coolant i'd def assume its A/C related. For me, the water ran down a wire harness, so the actual drip location was a few inches away from where it was really leaking
