2009 Journey has coolant on floor of garage on passenger side. Car doesn’t overheat but had to add coolant to the reservoir. Mechanic can’t find leak.

  • Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! Is it actually a coolant leak or is it just moisture leaking onto the floor? May 27 '18 at 15:52

    If it is coolant your heater core is leaking and needs replaced, if it clear water then the drain for your AC box is clogged.

  • Taste it , glyco will be sweet ( don't swallow ) . If not sweet ,it is water condensate. Yes , I have done it a few times and never died. Aug 29 '18 at 20:04

If its really coolant, then heater core is probably leaking. Surprised your mechanic can't find that.

If its just water (even dirty water), there should be a drain (if you've ever seen a car drip water on a hot day with the AC on) have your mechanic verify the drain is clear.

Both are typically on passenger side of car.
