Well i would check to see what type of fluid it is this would narrow it down to around 5 fluid types namely (apart from your neighbours dog who may dislike your esprit :P )

1 Brake Fluid Calipers pipes accumulator assembly/master cylinder,clutch pipe master etc.

2 Power steering fluid Steering rack and pipes.

3 Oil used in the a/c system pipes heat exchanger etc

4 Water

5 Engine oil heat exchangers and pipes

cant think of any more ................... :P

Look under the front bonnet near the headlights, there are some crimp

connections for the oil cooler pipes in each corner. Sometimes people

chop the rubber hoses and clamp a pipe in with jubilee clips as a join

to save buying a new section.
