View Full Version : water leak under car

11-26-2005, 05:27 PM
Hey guys, I'm at work right now on my cell fone so I couldn't really search for the problem...I parked my car here today and came inside to start work and about 30 minutes later I came outside and saw a nice sized puddle of what looks like water sittin under my car and startin to run down the hill

I check under the hood and everything seems dry and ok, my coolant level is good but I don't wanna start my car if sumthin could be wrong with it. My under carrage (sp) looks dry so I don't think it was any snow or ice melting either

Can some provide some insight on this please

did you run your AC by some random unknown chance?

No, no ac...I forgot to mention that

maybe its from another car that was there before yours? or maybe somone dumped a cup of water or something under it. could be anything.

the best way to find out what that stuff is since you seem to not be sure its water is the smell/taste test. reach under and get some on your finger and take a whiff, water is orderless, oil and coolant have distinctive smells. or if you have big balls and sometimes ignore your health, like me, you can taste it. but let me warn you, i am not responsible for any growths, whether cancerous or not, due to tasting this unknown liquid.

also, take another look under the hood with a flashlight, some leaks are easier to see with extra light.

If you used the windshield defrost, it runs the A/C.
