I popped the hood. It's a lot harder to tell what's going on with a van engine since it's way back in there. But there was no steam, no smell of hot coolant, no chemical mist. The area under the windshield washer reservoir was dry (though the fluid was rather low). Everything looked dry.
I got on my knees, reached under the van and caught a couple of drops. It moved and felt like water. No color, no smell, so it wasn't coolant, engine oil, transmission fluid or washer fluid. By now I was fairly certain it was just water, so I tasted it. Nothing.
Okay, it's water. But why is it dripping from the van?
Cool metal + fog = condensation.
Whew! You had me going there.ReplyDelete
YOU tasted it !!! What if it's poisonous ??ReplyDelete
You probably had the "defroster" on, that will cycle the a/c on and off. The a/c helps pull moisture from the van.ReplyDelete
There ya go! I had been using the defroster to defog the windshield.Delete
