Anti-freeze in floormat on driver's side

Hello! I notice anti-freeze on the floor mat after short drives. Doesn't everytime I drive it. It isn't a lot, but is noticable. Can't tell where it is coming from. Anyone else experienced this? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Sounds like your heater core is leaking.

Are you sure it's anti-freeze? Many of us with sunroofs had problems with the drain tubes leaking which created wet spots on the driver and/or passenger side floor.

Keep us updated.

Thumbs up

Yes, it is anti-freeze. Fortunately, I have had any issue with leaking sunroofs. Thanks!

jeep5253, you were correct, it was the heater core. Got it repaired today. Was an expensive repair, but when I purchased the vehicle, I purchased a plan where I only pay a $100 deducible. It certainly came in handy today! Thanks again!

Yep, heater core repairs are expensive. Glad it only cost you a hundred bucks.
