The air-conditioner went out about three/four months ago and hasn't been replaced/repaired. I topped off the coolant and the next day there was coolant collected in the front passenger and driver's side floorboard. A friend had a similar problem but a different vehicle... said it might be the heater coil? He said it usually happened when he ran the heater, which is also what happened in my case. Any ideas?

    It sounds like a heater core or heater hoses going in to the heater core. Hard to tell until we have a chance to look at it. Fortunately yours is not one where the entire dash has to be removed. Payne's could replace the heater core for $296 including tax. Contact us at 713.895.9948 if you would like for us to help you out.
