    2003 escalade ext fluid leaking from right side engine compartment

    I have a 2003 escalade ext and found a leak coming from the passenger side engine compartment, is it coming from my rack and pinion. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Is it colored or clear?
    Does it only do it with the a/c on?

    I ask as when the a/c is on it will create water which is normal

    its not condensation from a/c. it is colored and is oily to touch.

    ----------

    it kinda smells like power steering fluid.

    What color?
    The power steering would be towards the front drivers side

    This may sound strange but if you had an oil change recently and they greased the chassis, it could be from that as well. If it is not power steering fluid, see if it is liquified chassis grease. Put down a fresh piece of cardboard or newspaper to help you locate the source.
