    I just bought this 98' tacoma with 42K original miles. It has been in storage the last 10 years after it was in an accident waiting to be fixed. I just noticed a few small spots in the driveway coming from this spot on my transmission i beleive. Does anyone have any input on to what this may be or coming from or any cause... Appreciate any help.

    Just got a better look at it, is this oil? I would swear it was tranny just because it is where the drive shaft connects to, but when i wipe at it and smell it, it seems light brown and smells to me to be oil. Can anyone give me a hand with this please, at least give me a heads up on what type of fluid this probably is? I really dont want to drive it if the tranny may be getting low, but if its oil thats and easy check and fill. Help the dumb guy, thanks.
