sprung a leak

so i drive about 25-30 miles every morning to get to work. after leaving the jeep sit for 8 hrs, i notice a small stain on the ground, in the dead center of the front, like right behind the front bumper. I looked underneath and didnt see anything leaking or anything. It feels greasy, so i dont think its water. I never use my AC, so it's not that either. Any thoughts?

Sounds like power steering fluid. Check to see if its low.

No more jeep for now
But I have free kandy and kittens in the back of my van

...new fluid....?

There is possibly a number or type info molded into the cap on your PS fluid reservoir that will indicate the correct fluid... if not, the manual will tell for sure, if all else fails ask the parts guy to look it up before you purchase.

buy some power steering stop-leak formula. I poured it in mine a few years ago and hasn't dripped since...knock on wood.
