Re: small oil leak ???

wipe everything down so it's nice and clean, no residue or grim. then go for a drive and inspect it. Hopefully you'll be able to see where the oil came from easier.

Yea clean off the underneath of the engine area and check it after driving it or just let it idle. See if you can spot a leak. Make sure the oil filter it tight and that the drain plug gasket is in good shape.
