Q: Oil leaking under car

asked by on February 12, 2016

There is oil leaking under my car when I park it.

Hello, if the oil leak is big enough that you see it dripping on the ground, it should be inspected sooner than later to avoid damage. There are three possible sources of an oil leak, the engine, the transmission, and power steering. You are going to need the aid of a mechanic since the vehicle may have to be jacked up so the underside can be inspected to find the source of the leak.
