Question Purple stuff leaking...

Ok so I know the title is vague and this is going to be a vague question, but I had my car parked in the garage for 2 weekends in a row now, and every time I pull the car out there is a purple looking oil/liquid on the ground. I know that isn't a great description, but its all I have lol

Does anyone have any idea what this could be or any possible ideas where I can start looking around at stuff? My dad thought maybe AC leak but the AC is still blowing cold, no problems.

Please any help is appreciated!

Thank You

AC will not cause purple drops. I would say RP^ like he said. Check your dipstick and see if the oil is purple. Was this car recently purchased? Have you checked/changed oil on it? Leaks can come from many places. You'll want to sit the car maybe on jack stands and leave it sit and try the figure where it's coming from.

start your car and let it run and see if you see anything... if you don't... put a piece of cardboard under it and check it about half hour later and see where the purple is dripping and go from there... still think its royal purple

Well could it be a dye in the ac and when it leaks it gets on the hose and condensation makes it run off when parked?

Is it pearlescent in color? Worn trans fluid can take on this color, where engine oil won't.

WOw sorry for not responding sooner! lol Ok so I am unsure if the car is running Royal Purple or not. I just bought the car about 2 and a half months ago so anything oil wise or liquids that were changed were done by the dealership. I know they had to replace the AC compressor because of problems and they had to fix the brakes because they were seized up when I bought the car. I noticed someone said brake line leak, the brakes feel slightly stiff to press, but nothing to crazy.

I doubt the dealership used royal purple but who knows, check your fluids under your hood and figure out what one is purple.. if not then do like I said put a piece of cardboard under the car in he general area and come back in half hour and see where the drips are then look up

Well one, I haven't parked in the garage since I posted this so you won't see it. and Two when I move my car outside I do not see it on the driveway. I have no proof to show you guys right now.

If it isn't your car that's leaking, there's nothing to fix. Check your fluid levels and keep truckin'
