My wife just sent me this pic, fluid leaking from somewhere. I'm at work and cant look at it until later. I think it may be coolant?

Why would the (looks like coolant?) be so far out in front of the grill area? Is she sure it came from your Ridgeline? Could someone else have been parked there, and it's their vehicle leaking antifreeze?

Just thought I'd ask......

Looks like one of the Honda sheep escaped and was marking its territory. :)

Honda coolant is blue unless someone replaced it with the wrong stuff.

Most coolant used to be green. Now, most of it is blue (Honda), orange (GM's Dexcool), and green (original Prestone). Ford has or had a coolant that was yellow - I think it is/was called "Ford Premium Gold Coolant".

we have had her since day one. 2008. The wife backed it up to shovel some f the 12+ inches of snow that ha fallen so far today. No other vehicles in the driveway. If it isn't coolant, what might It be?

figured it out, wasn't from our Ridgeline at all, but from the postal delivery vehicle dropping off a package. I checked the entire engine compartment and underbody, did not find on spot that was wet. Thanks for all the input.

Don't be so sure . . . This question has come up a few times on the forum and I have seen the greenish yellow spots on my own driveway. Best answer I have is that it is from the fluid inside one the the motor mounts, most likely the passenger side one by the timing belt cover. Take at look at this and other mounts. . . .In a nutshell: there is most definitely fluid inside one or more of the motor mounts on the Ridge and this fluid tends to leak out. When it is on the driveway and particularly in snow it looks greenish yellow. . . .

thanks for the heads up, but she has not seen anything underneath the Ridgeline today.:act024:
