    So I have a 2010 Tacoma 4dr v6 4x4
    This morning I was driving to work when is see a stain on my passenger husky liner. I pulled over to check it out. It is clear and oily and I see that it is coming from the heater box or by the blend door motor and it is oily under the dash. There is nothing in the glove box that is leaking and the truck only has 3900 miles on it. I did have the blower motor change under warranty for the chirp noise but that was mid last year. Any help would be great or if this happen to anyone let me know the tread or were to look for info. It’s at the dealer right now and they are saying that they can’t find anything work but they see the oil. The oil spot was not there yesterday because I clean my truck this weekend, but I didn’t use any spray just got stuff out of the truck.

    Is it anti-freeze? I'm not a 2nd genner but I believe they use the red type antifreeze which is a little oily I believe. Heater core leak maybe?

    The fluid is clear and does not smell like coolant

    I just got the call from them again saying come get it they don't see anything yet the lower blower case shows signs of oil. My plan is pick it up turn on the ac and see if water comes out of that bottom tube under the truck and also remove the cabin air filter and I have a borescope to look inside. I will keep everyone posted if I find something.

    what?! what is easier?

    going to the service manager and describing the mystery liquid on the passenger side?

    or saying?

    "what is that? " (while pointing to the mystery liquid on the passenger side)

    you make no sense. sorry. i never fight over warranty. ever. i got everything fixed, because i could prove something was wrong. so much easier getting things fixed when they know what is wrong. the OP's car is a 2010, deep deep within the realm of warranty. get it done on toyota's dime.

    I did get them to do the tsb on the 4 shocks and the rear lift springs but I had to complain and then the truck was at the dealer for two weeks

    I think it would be grease from the servo drive actuator on the heat damper.
