Default Question about Drip from 06 LaCross

I have an 06 LaCross 3.8L CX. Has about 150,000 miles on it. I noticed water under the car yesterday afternoon. I started the car and knelt down behind the right side wheel and saw water dripping from the frame behind and to the outside of the oil pan. I suppose it must be coming from the cooling system. What would be in that area near the firewall to drip like that? I looked all around the motor and and I didn't see any leaks from any hoses. Is the water pump in that area (on the right side) underneath the rear of the motor?

Tell us where you are located. If you posted this in December and it's water and not antifreeze then you must be in a warm climate and you had the air conditioner running. If I am correct, then the water is simply condensation dripping off the cool parts of the AC components.

If it is clear water , yes , condensate . Normal , no problem . ( he could have the defrost on , in winter . )

If it is colored water, probable coolant , not good .

If it is oil , what color is it , not good ?

God bless
