Green Stuff in the passenger floor pan (antifreeze)?

I got in the Jeep yesterday after it had been sitting for several days and there was a small puddle of what looked to be antifreeze in the passenger floor board. Im thinking that may be coming from some part of the heater. Am I correct in assuming this? Have any of you ever experienced this?

I think your heater core is leaking!

Ahhh just put some of it on your fingers and give a lick to see what it is....

All joking aside it sounds like you have either a heat core hose clamp that is loose or a hole in the heater core itself. The core is located up under the dash. Check the clamps first. If they are tight you'll need to repair/replace the core. Goodluck.

The clamps are under the hood, most likely the core is leaking. Not too expensive to replace but you have to open up the dash to get access to everything.

That is exactly what was happen to mine. The Brass feed started to separate from the unit, and I was getting anti-freeze as you are. You have to replace the heater-core, or eliminate the heater for now!!!
