    Hey Gents...

    Please excuse me if I'm posting something that everyone else has posted, but this is kind of worrying me. Just bought my '05 Taco last week, and started noticing a leak. I figured it was just condensation because of the hot weather, but I opened up the hood and saw this overflow spitting fluid pretty rapidly. Is this anything I need to be worried about?

    You can see the tube that I'm talking about is right in the middle of the picture. On the passenger side, you can see it's a little bit above and outside of the header. It's dripping right on the frame then dripping down to the ground... Am I just being paranoid?

    Any help would be much appreciated...

    :) Is the fluid that drips out, look like clear water ? The hose you refer to looks like the air conditioning evaporator drain hose. As you use your AC, the evaporator sweats clear water that drips out all the time when it is running. You never notice it, because you are driving, but when you stop the clear water runs out and makes a puddle. It is not a problem and actually good that it does drip our freely, it means that the hose is open and working correctly.
