I had this leak at 15K miles.  I was able to identify it from the strange 
odor and smoke(!) from under the hood.  Apparently the fluid leaked onto the 
engine, then heated up.  Interestingly enough, I noticed it the day before 
my scheduled maintenance so I had them look at it then.

Yep, same year and model as mine.
