Unusual Fluid Leak

A Honda Pilot came in for us to look at because the owner saw fluid leaking from the rear. I put it up on a lift and took a look. The rear differential was dry, but the subframe had some kind of fluid on it. I also noticed some running down the spare tire.


I had no idea what the fluid could be coming from, because the only part containing any sort of oil or fluid is the rear differential, which as I said earlier was completely dry. I showed the service writer and he couldn’t tell either, so he went to get the customer. The customer came out and then remembered that a bottle of soy sauce had broken in the rear of the vehicle recently, so we smelled and tasted what was dripping and it was soy sauce that had leaked through. Got any rice?
