2000 Honda Passport: Red Fluid under Driver's Door

Hi,

I noticed what I can approximate to be about 2 teaspoons of red fluid on the asphalt under the driver's side door, near the wheel on my 2000 Honda Passport when I went to start my car one morning after a particularly cold night. (17F)

It hasn't gotten below freezing since and I haven't noticed any more fluid on the ground. (Although I sometimes get a green icicle that forms under the coolant reservoir - completely other side of the vehicle).

What fluids are typically red? This was dark, blood red.

Sounds like transmission fluid. It is usually red.

And it would be old tranny fluid at that..

First, are you sure it wasn't there when you parked the car?

As noted, transmission fluid is typically red, but it could also be engine coolant, power steering fluid or even windshield washer solvent.
