I have a 2000 Jeep TJ Sport and it is leaking something that I'm not exactly sure what it is.
It's coming from the drain tube that comes out of the firewall in the engine bay on the passenger side?
It's about 3" long and it seems to be dripping water but I'm not sure?

That's for the AC and it is water.

So thats what that is... I ran a longer hose and put it in the washer resevoir.. So that it auto fills...rofl rofl


Just kidding... AC works by removing moisture from the inside air and then it has to go somewhere so it just dumps it out on the ground.. Mr. Green

Home AC works the same way..

So if I'm not using the A/C, why is it leaking so much lately?

It seems to leave a small puddle after I first start up and when I stop.
Anywhere from 2" diameter to 6" diameter...sometimes nothing.

I tried using the AC and it still blows very cold.

I don't remember it doing this last year so maybe the air conditioner is starting to go?
Or is it something I probably shouldnt worry about?

I would start the Jeep and check the AC compressor clutch. If the controls on the dash are off set or something you might think you have the AC shut off but it's running.

With the selector on the Vent setting the clutches' inner wheel on the compressor should NOT be turning.

It could be plugged up and have a bunch of water stuck in there and your finally leaking a little bit?
Ive had wasps Make a home in my little drain tube, They plugged it up and My A/C started stinkin like Moldy stale 3 year's in the sun Butt Cheese! I cleaned it out and put a little peice of screen in there,HEHE..
Maybe poke around in the tube a bit? LOL

Other than that dont even worry bout it
If it blows cold and everything looks OK then It probably is!... Finger
