Default Help! Dripping sound after engine shuts off.

Right after i shut off my engine i hear a dripping noise from inside the car that appears to be coming from the passenger side of the car. I have no visible leaks and am not sure what this is from. The sound happens all the time doesn't seem to be affected by ac or heat being on. I am stumped any help would be great. A few months ago i did replace the upper intake manifold but i dont think this is the cause.

Condensation somewhere in your HVAC? I assume you can't find any drips or puddles inside or out?

Cant see any puddles. I did have code P 1440 come up 3 times in last year or so. I never fixed that code only cleared it out.

Do you smell anything funny?

This would usually mean the heater core is bad and you are going to be dripping coolant inside and the bottle under the hood will be low.

Could you be hearing the oil dripping back onto the pan?
