View Full Version : Water Leaks as car cools

10-25-2004, 05:31 PM
I noticed water leaking from the front as the car cools
I am unsure where it's coming from.
The temp gauge is fine and the car is running fine
Any ideas?

Water or Coolant?

I'm no mechanic, but

Water - A/C condenser, normal

Coolant - Water Pump, trouble

Definetely water
I felt it and it has no colour or viscosity it's clear but it's alot
I've seen it a couple of times now

if you had the a/c on that's where the water is coming from

I'll pay the dealer a visit
I am in T.O. it's too cold to the run the AC here.
I am just a little worried.
I'll keep you guys updated

if you have your climate control set to defogging... then your a/c is on even though you may not have the a/c button pressed.. (i think)

OK Guys here is the update
You guys were correct
I had the control set to defogging to keep the windscrren clear.
It seem that does turn on the AC and hence the water.
I had the cooling system pressure test done and no leaks whatsoever($29.00)
I can rest comfortably now.
