    Question fluid leaking but what is it

    Ok today i was looking out side at my truck and saw a gleam off so fluid under the truck so i checked under the truck and there was a slightly damp area on the tranny and on the oil pan. the fluid looked like oil but didnt smell like it really nor did it feel like it. any ideas what it might be it was yellowish in color. and my oil level hasnt dropped at all and neither has my tranny fluid level.

    brake fluid sounds possible because the original owner had to replace the brake lines before i bought the truck. but oil possible too just because its a 96' the has 194,000+ miles and is compleatly stock. and what do u mean by gear oil?
