So I recently found a hairline crack at the top of my radiator. Fixed ti last week with some high temp epoxy and it's worked wonders. No more leaking.

But I suddenly found, what I thought was more oil leaking. Put my finger in it and it was more like a watery gel, well a very watery gel if you know what I mean. First thought was more coolant leaking again so checked the 'fix' I had done and it was fine. Was the only day I used the aircon and havent used it since and its not leaked!

So my question is can using the aircon cause dripping from some kind of condensation from the compressor or something?

Theres a drain hose in the engine bay that should come out right around where the downpipe is on the firewall. It will drip water whenever the A/C is on as moisture in the air in the cabin condenses on the coil. Perfectly normal as long as its coming from the drain tube.
