Question Answered: 

WELL,,, its pretty straight forward ... if you leave it and see it on your driveway(good thing) its something in the engine like a leaky brittle hose or etc.... if you dont see anything on the driveway,,,its entering the engine(bad thing) thru the head gasket...if it is inside the floorboard of your car ,,, heater core.

Question Answered: 

most likely your thermostat may be not woriking or I believe your heater core may not be closing and opening ....guess would be to replace thermostat its cheap and easy to do....not sure what air conditioning would have to do with what you were asking.

Question Answered: 

make sure you check all the fuses in the car and the engine first...usually this is the most common problem... fuses blow.. that is also the most OVERLOOKED item too. check relays too. the next thing is something blocking the track.
