I have noticed a very small oil leak with only 3-4 drops of oil after driving but it is happening consistently. Where should I look first to find the leak?

On the ground. Next, look on the engine right above the spot on the ground. Look for the highest point on the engine you see oil since it only runs down and sprays toward the rear. It will also run along the ridge of the oil pan and drip from a different area.

Valve cover gaskets and oil pressure sending units are probably some of the more common sources of leaks.
