Clutch Cylnder Slave Sleeve

I am getting fluid (brake/hydraulic) from a small hose on the right (passenger) rear side. Not from the brakes. Is the tube coming from the slave sleeve. No issues driving. It looks like it is coming from a the transmission.. does the slave cylinder have a drain tube?

No, the clutch slave is a closed system, just like the brakes.

Are you absolutely certain it's not antifreeze?

Wipe up the fluid with a white paper towel and verify its color.

There is a coolant overflow tube right in front of the rear tire on the passenger side. One of the more common conditions that would cause coolant to overflow is air in the cooling system, usually from an insufficient bleed. Have you had a coolant system flush recently? Do you have a CEL? Is the car overheating?
