    I have a bone stock 97 gt automatic, it runs great but i notices last week green fluid on the AC compressor now i don't know where its coming from. The AC works great and the AC Clutch engages when its supposed to. I also noticed some build up on this black hose. I would appreciate any kind of feedback or help, its my first post but i plan on being active with my new car! Thank You IMG_9721.jpg 59062951972__06177312-59A9-4C8C-8413-72152338191D.jpg

    Intake manifold is probably leaking.

    Coolant cross over is known to warp on older intake manifolds.
    Could also be a leaky upper radiator hose. Check that before you buy a new intake if money is tight. If you do get a new intake, ford racing PI intake is the one to get.

    Could also be leaking through the weep hole from the water pump.

    Another thought, I have seen a greenish tinted oil leak from a compressor or AC line before, so if its not leaving puddles of coolant maybe take it to an AC specialist to check it. The system is under a lot of pressure and can leak slowly and still work for a while.
