I can't tell where it is coming from. the leak appears to be coming from above the AC vent ducting and dripping on the floor. It appears red like power steering or transmission fluid.

    My antifreese is green.

    I removed enough stuff to see up in the dashboard. I think it is dripping from the odometer cable which would explain the red oil from the transmission. Now I need to figure out how to stop it.

    can you explain how to remove the cable from the speedometer cluster? it is easy at the transmission.
