NEED HELP Engine leak

My ranger has been leaking a clear oily fluid from the front right wheel well, i obviously know this isnt the source, any ideas as to what it could be. Leaks as soon as i turn the truck off.

Could it be the evaporator drain you are seeing, A/C dries the air in the cab via the evaporator and that water drains out on the right side.

Also the A/C expansion valve or drier can be located on the right side of engine bay.
These are on the cold side of the A/C system so can act like evaporators and cause water to condense on them and drip out.
Also a leak in the A/C system here could cause similar clear oily fluid.
