Default 91Legend 4Dr

I notice a smell coming from the exhaust pipe when my Acura is running.
I've looked all around and the only thing I see that could be dripping down
on the exhaust is red fluid. I cannot locate any leaks but do see the red
fluid which appears to be transmission fluid. My fluid levels are all
normal and I don't see any reduction in the transmission fluid
level....dunno what it may be. I see some drops of fluid around the "vent
pipe" that travels up from the transmission...but don't know if that would
be a leak source.

Any suggestions????This has me puzzled.

It could be power steering fluid if it has the same consistency as
transmission fluid. What color is your antifreeze?
