I have a very small (one or two small drops a night) leak coming from what looks like the space between the catalytic converters. It seems too far back to be engine oil, but it has a brownish cast to it like oil (not red like transmission fluid, etc). I don't have a service manual with me and I don't have access to jack stands (I'm on a road trip), so I can't be more specific. Does anyone know what this is likely to be? Is it indicative of a major problem?

Thanks for your help.
