I noticed a sizzling and burning smell right after walking away from the truck for the night.

Went back and investigated while still hot. Noticed dripping on top of the engine at a wired connection.

Also noticed dripping in front passenger wheel well at another wired connection.

It's probably condensation from the AC. Turn that off for a bit and see if it still leaks.

I wish, but no. It left drip marks two days later that have not evaporated. I rubbed my finger across it and it’s oily with no smell.

I just picked up my rig 66 km on Odo and on right side R/C near firewall I have a stain spot similar to the picture and I wiped it off to see if it gets wet again
