: Help me identify these fluids!

I parked my truck overnight and it has been quite cold up here in the northeast. I noticed yesterday that I was getting a lime green color dripping off my second cat as the snow melted off of it. This morning I also noticed snow saturated with a red color near the alignment bolt on my front right wheel. Im wondering if its just the color of the grease that soaked into the snow or a more significant problem...Thanks in advance

Yeah it doesnt look like alot so Im just guessing that there was some residue that soaked into the snow...at least thats what im hoping.... the coolant level looks fine.

How about the washer fluid tank or hoses? The tank and it's connections are by the right front wheel as is the power steering fluid reservoir.

have you washed the undercarriage lately with anything, or do you use simple green when you do? just a thought...might be old cleaning agent or something.
