When I moved my car today I noticed several drops of an almost "luminous" green, slightly oily fluid on the garage floor. It appears to have come from forward of the engine/transmission Any suggestion as to what this might be?
I don't think that it is coolant - it didn't pass the taste test! Confused

luminous green is a/c dye .. probably o/s/r just in front of the wheel .

dark green is pentosin which is the power steering fluid .

If you have the old green antifreeze then that's green but often it just looks like water when on the ground so i doubt its that .


Post here about a/c ..

Thanks deMort. OPC installed a new metal, front to rear AC pipe a few weeks ago, so it could be a leaking union.
