Hi all,
I have just bought my 159 2.4JTDM, I must say it's a nice car. When I switch the AC on she starts dropping water right in the middle of the engine. Is this normal or is there a problem?
I have owned before a 147 with a smaller engine 1.6 but nother major like the 159 2.4
Please clarify me as I am sleepless conserning this matter

Please check my pics 2.4 JTDM

You need to clarify what you mean.
If you are finding water in the engine bay (which I am assuming you don't mean) then you have a problem. Check your radiator water level and see if it is losing water.

Otherwise , I will assume you mean that you are finding water on your road under the engine after running the aircon for a couple of minutes. The is perfectly normal and is only the drainage from the aircon.

All aircons cause condensation and on a car it is just allowed to drain freely to the road , parking up with the aircon on can cause a panic of a radiator leak as you will find a nice puddle under the car after 5 mins or so.

Thank you

Thanks for your reply,
Yes, After parking the car I found water on the road under the engine just after running the aircon.
I am more than relaxed now hearing that the leaking water under the engine it's normal.
Thank you so much for the information.:)
:)
