Three days after purchasing my ST I noticed a puddle under the passenger side front. At first it appeared to be antifreeze due to the color. I called the dealership and brought the vehicle in for service to take a look. After a pressure test and checking other possibilities, nothing could be found. Over the weekend I placed some paper on the ground and more fluid had dripped out. After checking under the SUV, I was able to locate the source and drove back to the dealership. The leak is coming from the aluminum pipe at the bottom of the A/C unit. Apparently Ford changed the color of antifreeze so it looks like the same color of the freon. Both fluids have a yellow color. The mechanic also said, the new antifreeze doesn't feel oily compared to the freon that feels very oily. Now I'm waiting on a part to come in to hopefully correct the issue.
