Small leak discovered

Hey all,

I was attempting to install my new DEPO headlights (unsuccessfully unfortunately) and noted this small leak under my car when I was under there.

Any idea what it might be? I know it's not A/C because I haven't been running it...

Get under the car and look.


I could "guess" and say its from the oil cooler o-ring or a lose oil filter OR runoff from the oil filter getting changed out ORRRRRRR from your oil pan...


Just get down there and check rather than wanting for 20 different posts of people taking a guess.

Thanks I'm not the most car-savvy. The oil was changed just a few days ago, so oil runoff would be a very good estimated guess...

Re: Small leak discovered

Just get down there and clean it up - then wait to see if it drips and find it from there.

Re: Small leak discovered

i wont ask why you were under your car trying to install headlights. check which side the oil is leaking from. just hope its not from the real main seal
