What color is the fluid? If it is clear, it is gasoline and you will need to check your fuel system. If it is dark or golden, it is oil and is probably coming from a leaky gasket or the oil filter needs changing. If it is red, it is transmission fluid and is probably coming from the oil cooler (small radiator by the radiator) or the lines leading to and from the oil cooler.
