I have had older cars that began leaking out of the oil pan, especially during the winter when the temperatures are lower and stuff loosens up, I have just tightened up loose bolts on the pan and that has stopped or slowed down the leaking. Yet I think you could start in the middle of the pan and hop from opposite side working your way outward. http://www.clarks- garage.com/pdf-manual/lube-06.pdf
