Welcome to JustAnswer.If you put your finger in the fluid I bet you will find it's just water. If it has no real oil odor it's nothing to worry about.The A/C evaporator that's inside the vehicle behind the glove box has a drain for condensation. The A/C acts as a dehumidifier so the moisture it gathers will drain out the bottom through a rubber drain tube. The location you describe is exactly where the moisture will collect on the ground under your vehicle. This is normal and nothing to worry about. High humidity days or using the A/C on fresh(outside air) will cause more moisture. Using the recirculate setting will improve A/C performance and reduce fuel consumption. This will also condition the air in the vehicle and produce less moisture. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to assist you. Your satisfaction and accepting my service or providing a positive rating is what I work for! If you can't rate in this way please let me know so I can continue to help. A positive rating is the only way the site will compensate me for helping you. You can still ask follow-up questions after the rating.Thanks again! ~Honda-Man

What Customers are Saying:

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

FredUSA

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
