okay heres the start. You ready? I just went on a long trip well 3 hrs long never took the car on a 3 hr trip before I left I had to add water because I was starting to over heat. Now sense it was hot still I knew not to put cold water into the raditar so I added water to the over flow while the car was running and went on about the trip. Car ran great.4 days after coming home I noticed I had 3 leaks already knew the the a.C water was ok but these 3 leaks I wasnt for sure what it was I came home jack up the car and I knowiced that 2 leaks are going from around the oil pan and the other one was upper into the front. My dad is dumb founded and cant seem to find these leaks. Im hopeing that its just the ac water going every where and just making more drips then from it normally drips at can you please give me a helpfull suggestion I need my baby back

It is normal for an a/c unit to drip water out of the passenger side. If it is more humid out then it will drip faster or in the city. If you are not seeing the level of your coolant tank constantly going down then i'd have to beleive that there is no leak in your system. However if you coolant tank needs water/coolant all the time tehn you have a leak, head gasket/water pump/intake gasket/etc. If you put a pressure tester on it should show a leak someplace, if it doesn't then it's an internal leak. You could have freeze plugs leaking though. They will not leak bad until all of a sudden then all your water will leave the system and you won't be able to put it in fas enough to replace it.
