Question about Mazda Protege
Hi Jeepy838, I don't know if you ever found a solution to your answer, but the same thing happened to me this year with my Toyota Camry. I ruled out transmission fluid and Toyota coolant because both are red. Oil is typically brownish to dark brown - depending on your oil change cycle. I ruled out anything from an animal, because it didn't have that type of odor. So, I did some research and came across an excellent Toyota forum web-site that sounds EXTREMELY reliable concerning this problem. (I also bounced this question off of my brother-in-law who lives in Maine and sure enough, he's seen the same problem under his vehicles. btw: I believe most people don't notice this issue because they typically get into their vehicle, start it and take off. It's a sight that goes unnoticed by most people. But, when you do notice - perhaps moving the car a little and getting out - it causes concern because you "think" your vehicle is leaking some fluid.) I'm quite sure this response will help many others!!! And, this problem is not limited to Toyota's either, although it may be more typical with older vehicles that have been subjected to time, weather, salt, etc: Neon Lime Green yellow Fluid Leak Solved Rav 4 Club
