what the heck is leaking now?

I have nothing to do at work today so thought I would put in new speakers. While walking around my truck I saw something was leaking under and a lot of it. Blew it off and finished it is still dripping down! I traced it to the passenger side under hood. It looks like it is the box near the firewall that the condenser lines go into. Is it my heater core? The liquid is clear any help would be greatly appreciated. Don't want a break down about to go 300 miles on sat.

Well the freon has a green color to it because the oil is a yellow green color and antifreeze is the same color. Clear to me is condensation however it is the winter.

That's what I was thinking and lately it has been cold so the heat is always on. Just did the crazy old man test and it has no taste. But the odd thing is the other day the condenser was sweating like crazy. Didn't think anything of it till now.

Do you have the defroster on in the truck? Even on heat when you have it selected on defrost the A/C compressor will come on. When it is on it will cycle refridgerant through the system.

I only run the defrost in the morning for about 20 min. For the most part it is always on mix. Please don't tell me the dummy that , that means heat and defrost. If so I will proudly wear the dummy hat today.

Yeah the floor/defrost selection will cycle the A/C compressor. superxcrewfx4 yours might not do it because it is all dependant on humidity. Mine won't do it unless I have the truck parked in the shop then take it out side with the defrost on. If I leave the truck outside no drips.

73rvHauler- Their is no dummy hat to wear a lot of people don't know the compressor comes on. All you saw was a drip and got concerned. Sounds like something any normal person would do.
