Ok, If you look behind the Nose Gear Doors, there is a big black street that looks like someone took a paintbrush and went strack across the fuselage. What is that big black streak? I would guess Hydraulic Fluid, but I am not sure.

Good old-fashioned muck from the runway if you ask me.

It is usually a combination of skydrol, CIC's (corrosion inhibiting compounds), greases, and any other vaguely liquid material that may be splashed into or out of the wheel well.
