Question about 1996 Chevrolet Blazer
Leaking water; when? where? How much? It is normal for air conditioning to release some water caused by humid air condensing on the evaporator in the dash. This will show up as a puddle under the car roughly in the middle of the auto body footprint. It will be clear.
If your water is coming from the radiator, it will be greenish or yellowish from anti-freeze. It will usually puddle under the front of the car. Your pet will love the taste (I am told it is sweet), and it can kill them. You cannot keep loosing coolant for long before your car will overheat in a cloud of steam. There is a makeup resevoir somewhere that will try its best to keep your cooling system full for awhile, but it only holds a quart or two.
So, if the water is clear, taste it. If it tastes like water and you have been running the AC, you have no problems. If it is colored, try to find where it is coming from. On a '96 vehicle, the radiator core could be leaking, or a hose could easily be bad. A good stopleak may help a radiator for awhile. Don't ignore a hose, they are cheap and easy to replace, and tend to fail dramatically. Radiators are not that hard to replace either, if a bit tedious. Try to find a good one in a junkyard first. Junkyards are high tech these days and many are on the internet. Replace the hoses anyway if you are going to the trouble of doing the radiator, it will save you grief later.
