if this isn't the strangest thing i've heard... leaking mud flaps. um, is the rest of your car wet? like condesation? is the whole wheel well wet? or just the flaps? how long does it sit before this "fluid" appears? be more specific about when this **** appears. just at night doesn't help. if you can't smell it, feel it, run it between your finger and thumb. does it feel like just water? or is there a different feel like an oily/slippery feel to it. 99 times out of 100 this test works... its the way i usually determine if fluid on a wing of a plane is condensation or fuel... if it feels like just water then i wouldn't worry about it. even coolant is gonna have a different feel then water. but i wouldn't see why coolant would get way over there. with water you will actually feel some friction. any sort of oily substance, you won't feel any friction.

the rest of the car is completly dry( underneath)...its leaking something just below the front two tires...and there's no condensation at all.

I'm not to familiar with the ac system, but maybe this has something to do with it not working

do your windshield washers work? the fluid can is right by your left front wheel...the hoses have a habit of coming undone...

the only plumbing that is around the area that I can think of off the top of my head is brakes / fuel / windshield washer all the fluids should be pretty distinguishable

you also have to consider the temp of the fluid, if it's warm or not
