What is causing my car air conditioner to leak condensation?


Answer by  JMack (34)

Your A/C leaking condensation is completely normal, especially in warm/humid climates. When your compressor is working properly, the freon cools the aluminum lines and accumulator tank. When that comes in contact with the warmer outside air, it forms condensation.

Your air conditioner has to be absolutely air tight. Just like any air conditioning unit in a home or even a small mobile AC unit water is produced from the AC Compressor or from the AC condenser. Unless you're leaking a fluid other than H20 that is not clear do not worry unless you hear funny noises.

Well it is perfectly normal for a cars ac condenser to drip water after being used. Like any other refrigerant condenser, the one in a car gets cold. The air on the surface of the condenser turns to water and collect. This in turn makes it drip.

I had my condenser replaced last year and now this year its leaking and I am told it is probably the compressor.
