Water leaking from 1987 4 runner toyota

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Brandy Schaffels, Editor at AskPatty.com, Inc. We would need more information about where the water is leaking from to be able to give you useful advice. Is it clear water or does it have a tinge of color that might indicate it is coming from the radiator? Sometimes, if you've been running the air conditioning, the unit may drip liquid created from the condensation process; this is normal for most A/C units. If the water is dripping from your exhaust pipe, it could be normal condensation, or indicate a head-gasket leak. For best results, we recommend you visit your trusted mechanic for a better diagnosis.
