Check your oil pan drain bolt. It might be stripped causing it to leak.

no.

you have to use ultra flange on the pan or it will leak.

you also have to remove the pan in a certain way or you will damage the pan

Are you sure its the oil pan, reason I ask is because oil can migrate to places you wouldn't expect especially when your driving 55 to 60 mph everyday. My slave cylinder is leaking has been for a while I have the part but waiting on the new hose to get it to replace it. But it leaks down the front of the motor and back across the oil pan and all over the bell housing, so the mechanics at the shop are rubbing their hands together saying you need some engine work (they think its the rear main seal leaking) but I know whats leaking pretty funny actually.

Good luck I hope you find the leak.
