I'm guessing an emergency venting of >fluid from the AC compressor? Not the A/C. It doesn't vent and aside from some fluorescent green leak detector that might be in there, it is never brown and you would not see it. Do you have an automatic transmission? It could be tranny fluid from the cooler. If so, do not drive the car until it is repaired. It could also be oil blown out of the turbo.
