Hi! We purchased a 2005 Aveo LT for my daughter to get back and forth to high school with, and it's been great for her to drive, no issues. However, I've noticed a spot will form on the driveway under the front passenger side that I noticed after she hadn't driven for two days. I just want to make sure that it isn't a major fluid leak. It doesn't seem to match up to any of the types of fluids that go into cars. I've put toweling under it, and it's clear, has no odor, but a slightly greasy feel to it. Like it's water, but with something in it. It is slow to dry (maybe because it's cold and damp now), but it eventually does and doesn't leave a permanent mark like an oil stain.
Today I ran my hand up where I saw a drop dangling, and it came away with clear fluid and some black stuff. The fluid looked and felt like water, and the black stuff was slightly oily. They weren't mixed, they were just both in the same place.
I assume the a/c hose drain is under there someplace. Would it continually drip, even when the car has been parked for a couple days? And could the oiliness be from water dripping and passing over the black gunk? Could that tube be blocked or something causing the drip, and is it something that needs to be fixed? My daughter has been driving it with the defrost since it's winter, so the a/c would be running.
