If it's when you immediately turn off the car, it could be the air conditioner condensation and nothing to worry about. If no warning lights are coming on when the car is running, most likely the case.

Antifreeze/coolant is typically green and smells sweet. Windshield wiper fluid is orange or blue, usually. Oil is, well...how well do you maintain your car; brownish, brown, or black (not good btw). Transmission fluid is typically reddish.

My 2003 Highlander has a line coming out the firewall and points down. I am dripping liquid at a pretty good clip and I do not have the air conditioning on. What is this?


If you run the defrost the a/c comes on and will cause the condensate to drip. Clear is just water. Is there any color to the fluid? Red or Pink would indicate coolant and it is possible the heater core might be leaking.

Underneath my tahoe on driver side is a small leak,clear fluid what can it be ?


Maybe brake fluid. Under the hood on the drivers side is the brake fluid reservoir and the brake lines generally run from there, under the drivers side, to the rear brakes. The lid may be loose or a line may be leaking. Would help to have someone look under the vehicle while someone pushes the brake to see if fluid is dripping.

Transmission


Are you sure it wasn't transmission fluid? That would explain the warning lights-low fluid.

First put something like paper down under the area of the leak. You will also need to see what type of oil it is.....black-oil; red-transmission fluid or power steering fluid; clear-power steering fluid; green/yellow-cooling fluid.....etc.

Clear liquid dripping under car near center ac has not been on don't smell like antifreeze under dash at the back of console is wet also don't smell like antfreeze


have you been using the defroster or defogger because these also run the compressor causing condensation....


since you said there's also condensation near your dash vents, it leads be to believe that the fluid will not be brake fluid or hydraulic fluid.
