any of those quick oil change people might be able to tell you, but dont trust them fully, they know nothing usually, they just talk big.

Is it coming from the front or back of the car?

could be a valve cover, or a rear seal.

didnt?, if the blocks all wet its the valve cover, if not, timing cover or oil pan. Probably both covers are loose, they all work loose sooner or later

remove the throttle body or use a u-joint or flex extension. Kind of hard? If one bolt is loose they all are

or maybe you left a bucket of KFC chicken in your car, and it's just the excess oil/grease that has seeped out of the chicken, eaten through the bottom of the car, and dripped onto the ground....

well that's better than valve covers at least :)

sorry bill

I'm kinda surprised nobody else suggested this yet.....y don't you just clean it up really well, and wherever oil is the next day/week, that's where the oil is coming from! duh! I've done this a few times it works pretty well
