There is motor oil leaking.
Engine oil leaks are common in higher mileage vehicles. This is due to gaskets failing over time from the constant heating and cooling of the engine. Gaskets when initially installed are pliable so they can seal properly. As they get old, they harden and become brittle. When this happens they no longer seal properly. Oil leaks are common in valve cover gaskets, oil pan gaskets, rear main seals, and crank shaft seals. A mechanic will be able to identify where the leak is coming and make the necessary repairs.
