AC Problem/Leaking Oil?
I have an 05 Chevy Cobalt LS Sedan. I have owned it for 4 years and it has 169,xxx miles on it. My AC recently stopped working as well, and today on my way home from work it seemed to be working great. I look behind me in the mirror and I see a trail of black smoke behind me. I pull off to the side of the freeway and it is leaking a thick green fluid and what looks like water. My instant thought was antifreeze. I started driving again to the next exit (watching the temp gauge closely). It seemed to stay at around 209 degrees reaching 212 at the most when I completely stopped on the side of the freeway (keep in mind I live in Phoenix and it was 114 today). I got home and let the car sit. One of my friends came over and was looking at the car with me. My antifreeze is an orange color and is full. And there is a puddle of green fluid under the vehicle on the passenger side close to under the air intake.
I googled to try and find an answer to this and searched a few forums (this one included) and all I could find is possible information on my heater core being bad and leaking water inside of the vehicle on the passenger floor board.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
