: Just about any petroleum fluid will look dark on a dirty engine. If there is any dirt, the fluid will be VERY hard to distinguish which it is. The BEST way would be to clean the area with an engine cleaner (GUNK) and rinse with water. Careful where you spray that water. When It is clean, then you will have a MUCH easier time finding the source of the leak.
