    Anyone know what the hell this is?

    No idea, no smell, feels like an oil of some sort, but i dont know what it could be coming from. its just a black rubber plug right there.. drivers side rear, just before the muffler. Doesnt look like any lines or tanks are above, just a random plug/grommet..

    I went out and checked that spot on my car. Way too far to be shock absorbers fluid. And it looked dry and clean.

    disregard.

    still not sure exactly what it is, BUT it seems to be some grease residue, that was mixed with meth. i had a major meth leak and the water/meth actually pooled in the trunk of the car, and then pooled ina spot on the frame, i guess you call it. then it mixed with said grease. I just popped the grommet off and wiped clean, nothing is leaking, but definatly meth mix, has smell, cold, evaporates quickly ect.

    I apreciate the quick help though Click here to enlarge
