Recently saw some spots in the driveway, found to e clear oily fluid slowly dripping from the front of the pass wheel well in the wife's 03 base impala.
I investigate, no obvious signs of leaking (besides my usual oil leaks). Brake fluid is the closest in color (still not quite the same), The power steering fluid has never been changes so that is much darker than what is on the driveway. There is no obvious source of the the fluid. No wetness around the brake lines, master cyl. PS pump. No obvious leak of PS fluid. All the boots look good, dry and pliable. Tie rods are dry as well.
Any thoughts? and yes, I have considered that I may have driven through something which coated the wheel well, but it's been slowly dripping for days now.
Was also thinking of AC compressor oil but AC doesn't work (hasn't worked for a while) so we never turn it on. I checked around the compressor, it's dry. I was also under the impression it was neon green in color.
I also thought perhaps fluid from inside the struts, but they are dry too
