But There's Fluid Leaking Under My Car

There are times when you'll look under your car and notice some drips occurring in various areas underneath of the car. Some of these leaks really do (or should) require a trained eye to determine where they are coming from and if they warrant repair. In this particular case, the client had a concern when they noticed a "clearish" fluid leaking from the center of the car. Once we investigated the leak on the lift, we realized right away that the "clearish" fluid was simply water. The A/C system is designed to remove the humidity from the cabin which makes you feel nice and cool. That humidity (moisture) is condensed into water as it passes over the chilled evaporator which rests inside a specially designed box. Once that vapor changes state to water, it fills up that box. The box is designed with a relief tube that allows the water to drain out of the box.

Cabin Air Filter From Buckley’s Auto Care

What is a cabin air filter? Is it: A filter for a house in the middle of the woods? A fresh, piney scent? A filter for the passenger compartment of your car? Clever you, it’s 3. A cabin air filter cleans the outside air before it comes into the passenger compartment. It filters out dust, pollen, spores, bacteria, pollutants, sparrows, exhaust gas and odors. These high tech filters can block particles larger than 3 microns. By contrast, a grain of sand is about 200 microns. Now not all vehicles have cabin filters. They are fairly new on the scene. About forty percent of new vehicles come with cabin air filters, but the number is growing every year. Cabin air filters can make for a very nice driving environment. Your car can be a haven during allergy season with very little dust and pollen getting into the cabin. However, the filter eventually gets clogged.
