My car has an oil leak. 2004 Ford Taurus. From what I can see just by looking under it from the front of the car (not lifted), there is oil on the front of the oil pan, underneath it, and back onto whatever that thing is behind it. I had noticed a decent size oil spot after my car had been warming up in the driveway. I have no oil pressure warning, no smoke, no bad smells. I let the car sit all night with cardboard under it. Not a drop of oil in the morning. When I let it run in the driveway for a bit, there was oil on the cardboard. But I can't see where it's coming from. I'm thinking it's the oil pan gasket and hoping it's not something worse like a rear or front seal. What do you think?
