Unhappy I have smoke..

So, a couple of days ago, I was at sonic and I noticed a little smoke coming out from under the hood, I had just changed the front diff fluid and thought I might have spilled a little oil on the exhaust. Now I think Iím wrong. I constantly am checking the fluids, and the only one that was a little low was the radiator. But, I just changed that out a while ago and it could be explainable that i didnít fill it completely.

There is some oil like substance leaking onto the first cat, and I cannot figure out what it is. It smokes when it is driven for a long time, 30< min. Ideas?

could be anything- Id' check your CV boot too. Sometimes the transmission overheats and pukes out the vent hole on the auto's. A torn boot will squeeze grease out.

what color is the fluid? swipe it with your finger or some paper towel. The color might help narrow it down. I think power steering comes in different colors but I've seen red.

is it coming from a side of the engine? If so, could be your left/right cam seal depending on where the smoke is coming from
