is car 4WD?
ok, is this your first car?
is this your first car with A/C? for first time ever using and A/C?
(btw front defrost mode uses A/C functions)

if pure water, its just A/C condesate, 100% normal all cars.
today cars have a wide variaty of new fangled fluids.
in the olden days we had tan, and green'
now its many.
toxic AF (antifreeze) green, pin, yellow, red, orange , etc. now.
Engine oil think goodness is just tan/brown or black
pull dip stick gander at the tip (THAT is your color today)
now the transmission, A./T automatic, it usually is pink, but can be
read or dark red. (if your year has a dip stick on A/t pull it and bingo your color is there)
then there is the leaking, (rare) window washers. (can be any color)
but is soaping to the touch.
last is M/t boxes. manual gear boxes,, and transfer case (4wd)
the they can be , clear to brown. my synthetic is clear but is very viscous, and smells sweat.
Some axles and transmissions have (gear boxes) have hypoid gear lube that is brown and stinks to high heaven.. nasty smell.
But this too can be different today, and be any color, from clear to purple to brown.
last is brake fluid, its always clear, but in large volume or old is amber.
it smells sweet. and sticky.
that is what we have today.

find your cars A/C condensate drip tube under car
and memorize that location, then when it leaks, you know.
its that.
on some cars its at passegers toes.
on my jeep its dead center, of car.

This sounds very much like a faulty thermostat.

Sealant alone will not stop a leak where the luggage rack is leaking, if it is the L/R. I am a Pilot and you just cant imagine how water can be driven in past sealant at speed. If you are leaving it to the dealer to correct this leak, good luck. I really believe it is the rack. A window leak is to easy to correct.

SOURCE: A few days ago I

If you had your transmission rebuilt 6 months ago it should be under warranty take it back and have them recheck it. I don't think transmission fluid would be clear and odorless but i could be wrong as i am not there and it isn't my vehicle and I do not know the history, but if I had paid to have the transmission rebuilt only 6 months ago and I had any questions as to whether this could be an issue with that rebuild I would indeed take the vehicle back and have the mechanic that did the original work recheck and make sure that it is not a problem with the transmission. also have you checked your transmission fluid level to see if it is low to see if it is losing fluid? If so then immediately take it back to the shop or call them to come tow it back and fix the problem, but it sounds like condensation off of the engine, but as I said without being there seeing the issue and knowing the complete history I would be wary to tell you it is specifically one thing or the other. In my experience when I have taken a vehicle to to be repaired and had any further issues within a years time I have always taken it back to the shop to have them verify what the new or continuing issues are.


I hope that this helps you out.

Your heater core is leaking. Jeeps have a heater core that is accessed under the dash it is not an easy job and requires a good set of tools and will take you a few hours to do. the most important thing to remember is not to rush and to be careful when removing parts and wires along with vacuum hoses and drain the system before starting the project. the only other thing that I can advise you is that if you bare not a qualified mechanic then take the jeep into the dealership if you want it fixed right in a timely manner. Or if you know an expert repair shop.

2005 Jeep Liberty Washer Fluid - Where is the water-line that leads from the water reservoir in the hood to the rear wipers?

It may seem a strange question but does the wetness on the front passenger floor smell of anything. Water has no particular smell washer fluid does. The hose will probably come through the bulkhead between you and the engine and run under the carpet to the back of the car. Try using the washers before moving the car. See if it is leaking under the car.

The two back brake lights went out at the same time but the brake light on top of the rear window still works, would the problem be the bulbs or a fuse? 2005 Jeep Liberty

Both of my brakelights have gone out on my 2005 jeep liberty. The problem is the brakelight socket. I bought replacement socket from the dealership for about $8 each. They are wireless and easy to replace. They sit on a circuit monted to the back of the tailight. The dealership will need your vin # as there are different types of sockets for the liberty.

My 2001 jeep liberty needs water added often, like

OK, you know that you are loosing coolant somewhere. What you need to do (I can't from here) is carefully look at everything that water passes through till you find evidence of seepage. Check the ground where you park (but remember that coolant will run down and across, dripping somewhere other than exactly where the leak is) Check the chassis after sitting a few hours, under the pump pulley and head/block parting lines..rug on passenger side and heater control valve on hoses going into firewall.but definitely EVERWHERE.
