engine oil pan
I just noticed some small spots on the my driveway, i am now guessing that i have this engine oil pan leak. It looks like it is burning off on the exhaust passenger side. It doesn't smoke nor leave a lot of drip marks.It seems like it is worse then I could tell. My car has been pretty good. 30K miles without any problems.I think the front suspension is starting to go also as the tires are recently wearing on the inside. It does not seem like a car with 60K should have an engine leak.

with the engine cold get some degreaser and clean evrything in the engine and underneath the car. Then run the car again and recheck the leak. changing the oil pan gasket is not an easy project but it can be done. Just make sure that is the source.
