Noticed an oil spot on the ground last couple of days I've left for school. Thought it was definitely the transmission or maybe the oil drain wasn't tight. Checked both levels and they were fine. So now I'm thinking maybe its power steering or something, but that doesn't make much sense because of where the leak is coming from. Put my car up on ramps and took a picture. If anyone could help me identify wtf is leaking that would be great.

Be sure to check your blinker fluid, you dont wanna get stopped for something stupid like that.

Check your coolent, mine leaked before and ran down all sorts of lines all the way to the fuel filter, So I though it was that and was confused.

If I dont see fluid under my van, means its empty and I need to add something somewhere.

would help if we had a color, but if your sure its oil, I would check the oilpan for holes, or the rubber ring around the bolt on the oil pan, those go out pretty commonly. If its green check radiator, check upper and lower radiator hoses, look for cracks or splices, check power sterring pump/hoses for visible signs of wear and tear, checkl brake lines, and also, if you have your AC on, and been using it for awhile, water and condensation will drip of the condensor and evaporator. lmk if this helps. :)

aslo, if itsd transmission fluid, (sorry just seen that) and you have a enclosed system, you wont be able to check it, you will have to go to a transmission shop, if you have a cottman transmission where you live, they will check it out and diagnose it for free.

What color is the fluid? it might just be condesation dripping down also happens when it's a summer day humid putting the a/c on . but with your pic doesn't look like nothing there.

find out where the leak is coming from and add fine sawdust in the resevoir....it will seal all leaks...most used car lots use that on the vehicles they sell :) proven leak stopper...

i use to have a friend that had really bad leaking brakes in his chevy luv pickup.....finally he decided he wasn't gonna spend anymore money on brake fluid and decided to use water since its a fluid also and they both flow...It worked for a few days :)

If you dont seem to find the source of the leak just place a piece of clean plastic under the car tonight and tomorrow you can look at it as its not gonna be a stain in the ground...
