Not too long ago I had some fluid leaking from what it looked like around the radiator. Seemed to be leaking onto my lip and pooling on the pavement below. Searched for about 10 minutes and could not for the life of me find the source. Rubbed it between my fingers to feel the viscosity, coolant perhaps? Then I decided to smell it.

Cat ****.

I did this EXACT same thing last Friday. Oddly, I had just topped off the overflow, so my natual reaction to seeing a somewhat brightish green-yellow stain on my front lip was like yours.....wipe, check viscosity and smell...... oh the gagging that came after step #3. Well, I shouldsay, I had been congested so the first time I attempted to smell it, I couldn't quite get it...then I really took a deep wiff..... ohthehugemanatee.
Sucks, doesn't it?

I never smelled it before. Describe the scent please
Is it bad like someone took a big **** in a tiny bathroom, or like the skunk that gets hit on the highway bad?

Hehe...borrowed my father-in-law's '95 Civic that was parked outside in the grass. Was just pulling out of the neighborhood when a little green snake poked it's head up out of the hood at the base of the windshield and I swear the damn thing looked at me through the glass.

My driver's side window was open....I've never cranked up a window so fast in my life.

when i worked at a body shop, we had had cars in the lot sitting without doors, hood, whatever, all the time waiting for parts or just to be hung. well one day a customer brought his car back complaining it smelled. ended up pulling the dash out to find a dead snake wrapped up around stuff

It happens every year this time of year. We have been dipping into the 20's most nights and the field mice come inside where it is warm.

A month ago I put out those 1" cube rodent blocks every 10' around the shop. They are chewed up and I know they work because I have found half a dozen dead ones. I also have two of the electronic rodent repellers. I think that the only thing they repel is common sense when you part your money from your wallet, but whatever. I have two in each bay of the shop. STILL these little ******* are around.

We use those electronic repellers at my last job to protect the electronic equipment on the top of the mountain. They're annoying as hell.

I used the electronic repellers in a barn for over a year while storing my Camaro. Granted, I had the tires off and the car on jackstands... but never a single mouse problem.

I put them in my garage this year and set out 4 traps as well since I seen a few in there. Killed 2 moles and 1 mouse in the first 2 days. Now it's been 5 days of no activity and its getting colder and colder outside. I have to imagine the electronic things work somewhat.

The oil trail is funny!
