maybe oil not sure
Hyundai Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 3 months ago

HI,

Ok, check the tailpipe by wiping a rag inside its opening and see if there is any oil or coolant residue, check your coolant and oil levels to see if either is low as well as if there is coolant in the oil or oil in the coolant and let me know results and we can go from there
