lol yea, little drops and stuff, but yea, thats good to hear its not that big of a deal, on another note, I just got flowmasters installed the other week, true dual exhaust cut out the Y-pipe but I didnt have enough money to get some tips (I know im pathetic lol) but just because I didnt get tips, does that affect anything? other then probably my sound?

make sure you have the oil filter and the drain plug tightened all the way. See if you can pinpoint where it's leaking from exactly.

A little oil leak never hurt anyone I say, but do what WhiteStang said and check. It's when your dumping in a quart every week that theres a major problem :p

I don't see tips affecting performance very much, but they could chage the sound a bit.

Yes tips'll change the sound, and just check to make sure the oil filter is snug...not overtightened either, and check to make sure drain plug is tight. Other than that, make sure filler cap is on...and just make sure ur not dripping too much. If dripping over a quart every few weeks, I'd check my oil pan for a crack.

all you need to tighten it is finger tight and then a 1/4-1/2 turn more. It doesnt need to be very tight. It will seal itself.

you're fine with those little drops.

Yeh, alot of people will tighten down that oil filter till it won't turn anymore, then complain when they can't get it back off lol. I remember trying to change my dad's oil one day..stupid quick lube people must've used a wrench or something, I ended up ramming my screwdriver through it and getting it off that way...needless to say, not my no spot on driveway oil change I do in my car lol

I was tired...and out of it. What I meant was when I had to change my dad's oil...I got some on the driveway. When I change my oil, not a drop get's spilled on the driveway. That's what I meant.

where from, front rear? go look or put card board under the car and then go a bit later and see in what area you are getting the leak.
