Flourescent green stuff

I was looking under my navigator after the last oil change and noticed some sort of fluorescent green spray on some support brackets. It didn't look liker it was dripping from anywhere, and it wasn't coolant. The truck was serviced about 8 mons ago by the dealer, but i don't know how long its been there. I want to be sure im not leaking anything....any ideas what it is?
thanks

Sounds to me like dye for the ac system.

What model year is your Navigator? It makes a difference in what it could be.

Exactly what I was thinking.

IIRC, Ford went to all gold coolant beginning with the '03 model year, so I'd agree that it's probably a/c dye. To be that visible, it'd have to be one catastrophic leak from the system.

Advance Auto sells a kit with an ultraviolet penlight and a pair of yellow safety glasses in the $10-$15 range. Might be worth investing in one and tracing the leak, just to make sure.
