What is this leak?
 
Just dove by my parking spot and noticed some shady-looking puddles! Something is leaking from the ZHP :(.

Looks like oil, but doesn't feel like oil. Ran my finger through it numerous times - not oily at all. Seems to be dripping near the rear axle.

Checked the oil, and it's above the minimum mark.

Any ideas?

Could this be the diff leaking?

ah the 'what is this leak problem...'

cant you go under the car and see?

I did have a look under my car and everything that I could see was dry. Interestingly enough, the lighter-coloured liquid seems to be spread over a good couple feet, perpendicular to the stall's direction; my parking doesn't vary that much... going to call up my mechanic right now and see if I can drop in for him to have a look.

Could be Trans fluid, power steering fluid or the fluid inside the front control arm bushing.
