Hi guys, I was checking my transmission fluid the other day (engine running of course) and noticed one of the rubber hoses in the engine bay looked like it was 'sweating' a little. There didn't seem to be any direct leak, just very small droplets sticking to the outside of the rubber hose. I wiped it down with a tissue and it didn't smell like gas or look like oil.

Can anyone tell me what the hose in the picture under the arrow is?
I know hoses deteriorate over time and I plan to have it looked at. Is this something I should be immediately concerned about?

This is a standard pic I got from wiki, but my engine is the same. eg NA 3.8L

isn't that an a/c hose going to the interior? i.e. cold "freon" is in that tube going to the interior...

Yeah, pretty sure those are a/c lines.

@Natesriv Oh that's great news! Thanks for the response. So I guess it's probably just water condensation? It's 80 plus degrees here in LA at the moment so that would make sense with the cold freon.

Yes, that is an AC line, so if the AC was on, condensation will form on that line.
