water on the ground. LEAK ?
 
I was sitting in the garage for about 10 min, drove away and had to come back as i forgot something. I've seen a pile of water on a group where the engine was. I touched it and it seemed like water not coolant or oil.
It's winter here and I did not have AC on. Is this water discharge suppose to be there or something is leaking ?

Thanks :bigpimp:

Could it be snow or rain leaking down or possibly so cold that the exhaust is building condensation? If it's not coolant or oil, and just pure water I would bet it's something stupid that is normal..

Hey how's it going? you may need a new engine gasket.

Seals shrink when it's really cold; every mechanic I know in the LA area loves winter because that's when they get all the cars coming in with leaks. It could be any number of areas; if it's near the rear of the engine it could be head gasket seals, if its near the front you have a range of choices. The two I read about most often are the bottom of the coolant tank or the lower radiator hose where it meets the radiator. There are a few scarier options but they would be consistent, not just with the cold.

The ac compressor still runs on heat setting on some cars, if I recall correctly its to remove moisture and help with defrosting. I dont know if this applies to our cars too.

i had a slow leak of water coming from under my car and i had them install a new water pump, coolant reservoir, and spider hose. it continued to leak until they changed the engine gasket. it's just a suggestion. good luck!

What side is your rims.. Sorry I love your car want to go with some 22s stagger cause I'm a woman not into all the big wheels but everybody laugh and said 24s .. They think 22 will look small ..

What's up Caressa? Thank you for the love! My wheels are 22's. I live in LA and i see them all of the time with 24's and they are too big in my opinion. They might as well be riding a camel because you can see them from a mile away.

24's :thumbdwn:

I had 24's. If you like rubbing and having to dodge everything in the road with horrible ride quality you will love them!
