Leak- oil or coolant?

3850 Views 17 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  BushBoarder
So I noticed a small stain on my garage floor after my BE sat there for a week while I was on vacation.

It's located at the very front below the radiator, slightly to the driver's side from center. To me, it looks brownish like oil would but I'm a colorblind fool. Any thoughts on if this is oil or coolant?

I'm bringing it to the dealer tomorrow morning to be checked.

Could be trans fluid. Maybe one of the cooler lines that connect near the radiator are leaking. That'd be my guess. I think Honda ATF-DW1 fluid is a bit more reddish than in your pic, so not 100% sure. Good luck. I'm sure it'll be fixed promptly.
