Leak.

Alright I have a leak and Im stumped as to what it is. At first I thought it was gas because I smell fumes occasionally in my car but it was looked at today and there is no leaks in my fuel system. Whatever it is, its clear and odorless. Almost think its water, but what the hell would be leaking water. Any thoughts?

Drivers side or passenger side. Could be a heater core.

If all fluids are staying at the same level it is probably just precipitation off of the cold cast iron block. Also some brake fluid is clear, I don't know if it has a cent or not though... Is it sticky or runny or soft?

No odor, and its just liquid. Like water. And its leaving some decent sized puddles

It's not just melting snow/ice, is it?
In winter/deep snow, it can pack into all sorts of places and take a while to thaw out.

Might be washer fluid ...

definitely not snow or ice. been 50-70 here for weeks now. i thought about the washer fluid, but i still have plenty.

Also it only leaks when the car is on and cold. it wont leak once the car warms up, and doesnt leak when the car is off. seriously im stumped lol
