Today when I went out to my car there was a puddle of what appears to be water (no odor, or color, feels like water and not oily) under my left front tire. I don't think it's ABC fluid unless that is clear like water...

I did use the headlight sprayer once yesterday too.

Anyone know what could be leaking? seems it might have came from the engine and not the suspension but I can't really tell from what I just know it for sure came out of my car.

\check fluids, if nothing is low, check drains... it may be rain water accumulated

If it is coming from behind the wheel, might it be the air conditioning water drain from the evaporator or does that come out in another location?
