No, not water from AC.

Sedan is under 100,000 miles. Has had both front bearings replaced, today is getting a new water pump as it is leaking bad.

For the past year or so, would randomly get a leak on the garage floor. It is clear with a petrolem/greasy feal to it. It would appear but when I notice, it stops dripping. GM dealer, only ones who have touched the car, claim they cannot find it. Even today, with the water pump being replace, can't find any other leaks. Unless I clean up this spot, the size of a sheet of paper, it takes a few days to disappear.

We are now outside of the 5yr/100,000 miles and just waiting for this to drop a major part. The repair today of the water pump is a 'One time adjustment' to this which I am greatful.

Any clues to this clear, greasy fluid?

Where is the leak in relation to the car. For instance is it leaking near a wheel, or in the center, more towards the front or back? Could be A/C oil, could also be Brake fluid, I've known people to see it as a clear liquid, Even though it isn't really all that clear.

The dealer covered the replacement of the water pump today, extended the 5yr/100k . The pics attached will show coolant of course in its obvious color. The puddle on the floor was mostly from the coolant but this is the same general location as clear fluid. The picture of the part is right in the front right corner. I held my phone in the path of the drip. It was just about to drip again, notice the clear droplet about to fall.

any update on this. Mine just started leaking this morning right beside the inside of the passenger side front tire. Appears to clear and does not have a smell to it but does have a greasy feel to it.

Judging by the location and what you're describing it sounds more and more like the A/C compressor oil. From the picture it does kind of look like tranny fluid, but what it's doing dripping around the compressor I have no idea. Unless it's coming from a connection into the radiator and is just running down a line or something until finally dripping.

anti-freeze, dex-cool, etc. Prestone is a brand of anti freeze. Ended up being crank seal and head gasket, car is down till Tuesday. Power train covers all and I get a 2012 Cruze for the next couple of days.
