Default Redish brown liquid.

Popped open the hood to find fluid drops on my white engine cover. Reddish brown. Could this be tranny oil?? If so how is it getting all over the manifold and leaving a wet spot under my hood?

Rust from the hood caused by condensation?

What does it smell like. Pull the dip sticks and compare the color.

X 2. Touch it, smell it, compare it to the fluids on the dipsticks (oil, power steering, transmission).
