Most probably a worn gasket. What side and location of the engine is it leaking from?

The oil is leaking on the ground right undernesth the part that holds it.almost directly in the middle.


Sounds like your oil plug might be loose/stripped or the gasket is bad. Purchase a new one and install it when you do your next oil change.

Thank you so much. If you don't mind I have one more question. My heater went out last year. Not sure what hppened but the air conditioner works. Can you tell me what might be wrong?


Sounds like a rear main seal leak. If so it means pulling the transmission to repair.
