 I noticed you had just driven the car a fairly long distance. One thing to 
check carefully is hydraulic leaks from the rack and associated hoses. My 
experience is that these types of leaks tend to become more obvious after fairly 
extended highway driving. It doesn't take much of a Pentosin leak to cover those 
pipes and since there is usually old oil/grease in that area the Pentosin 
tends to mix with it making it appear/smell like its all fresh oil.
