Something's Leaking...
Finally got pics of under the car where it was leaking...What'd you guys think it could be? The liquid is clear and looks like water.

Did it just come back from the dealer? It looks like they flushed something and probably forgot to clean it. Does it leak very often? I've spilled red coolant due to overflowing the radiator reservoir container and the plastics got soaked in radiator fluid. The next day I drove the car around the block and parked in back in the garage. Their was red drips on the floor cleaned it up and it all went away.

Try to track where it's coming from. Clean it dry it shouldn't be hard to find where it's coming from since the color is green. Some people use green radiator fluid.

Check all your fluids and visually check all your reservoir containers if they are all level and filled to the proper height.

If the leak is constantly happening then you may need to tell the dealer to check it out again.

Crap, I forgot to tell you guys that I hit a curb at like 30 mph. I jumped it, popped a tire, and right after that, the car started leaking. I just assumed you all read my other post about the accident. But yeah it's leaking because I hit the curb...

Its probably not coolant overflow or powersteering fluid, both those are on the passenger side of the vehicle.

Either tranny fluid or brake fluid. Get a bright light & find the source.

I'm guessing tranny or brake fluid from where the leak appears to be coming from

Probably banged up some pan down their if you hit it that hard. Make sure nothing has external damage. If you're tranny is loosing it's grip then it's the for sure tranny. If you're brakes is sinking to the floor and going out then the brakes. Check the levels of all your fluids and reservoirs. My brake fluid is not green in color I don't know about yours. Like everyone else said check it down their before you get into bigger problems.

You jumped a curb? Holy crap, take the underbody panels off and check everything for damage.

BTW, how did you jump a curb?

Well, I was going under an overpass in my school and didn't see the flat wide speed bump they had there right in the middle of a corner. I was going pretty fast so when I hit the speed bump, I caught some air, and then my back tires slid on the dirt they had on side for construction. I almost hit the median in the middle but managed to avoid that by counter-steering. Instead I hit the curb on the side, jumped it, and landed in the parking lot on the other side. I popped the tire, bent both my front rims and that clear liquid started leaking. Shitty...it's gonna cost $900 to fix, and I need to buy 2 new rims. That's a big dent in my wallet...

only thing automotive that would be green is coolant. trans fluid is red, oil is amber, brake fluid is amber/brown. My money is on coolant and its prolly damaged a seal or an alu. part due to the wrong type

If it's water, maybe it's from the AC. The condenser on my wifes Ford drips a bit of water after using the AC a lot.

So what was the resolution to this mysterious green liquid?

I just had my Tranny rebuilt (Inner bearing blew and did some serious damage to the unit on the highway) by the dealership maybe 3 weeks ago. Last weekend I was swapping off my front skirt and taking advantage of doing other little tasks made easier, and noticed green fluid in the same location as the above picture leaking over the plastics. I know it's not the coolant, because my coolant is an off Orange in the reservoir.

My 2002 hasn't had any leaks previously and I'm suspecting its transmission fluid. After a 3000$ job to rebuild the unit, I'm fairly aggravated to see this now. But before I go chewing someone's ear off I figured I better have my facts straight eh?
