    Hi all

    just noticed some thing dripping from either side of the front of car, clear when it's on the floor, black when I touch it, very runny like water, and tastes salty?

    Any ideas?

    I havnt got the under engine cover thing on te car

    And i've only just noticed it, I was driving on the motorway while they were salting, gritting, if it could be that at all?

    Cheers guys

    Could just be water that's been removed by the air con?

    Could be (and probably is) just water from the road.

    Lol sounds funny I know, but i've always seen people around me do it too see if it was oil

    I hope it's only water, coolants where it was, oils fine

    Didn't read it was from both sides, in which case I'd go with mitch. So basically you tasted road water, yum! :p
