Did you or a valet park your car and run over a parking burm/stop? LIke these other people said, many things, I don't think it has anything to do with the 100,000 milestone, could have been going on from earlier.

You might consider this. Warm up the engine at idle for about 5 min. Place a large piece of cardboard flat under the front of this vehicle. Let her run for about another 5 min. Shut her off ....grab a strong flash light and look under the vehicle with the card board still in place. The oil drops on the cardboard should help you find the AREA of the leak. Take a picture of the suspect area and post it here.
