Oil Leak
Did a coolant flush today and in the process noticed a small oil leak that appears to be coming from around the front differential and the oil pan. It doesn't appear to be a very big deal; there was just a very small puddle that had formed on the engine plate. What's the most common thing that might cause a leak there? Anyone have a similar issue before?

my money is on oil filter housing gasket.


The first picture points you to where to check on from the top of the engine bay to verify.

Could be a PCV hose. I had a leak in a similar place and that's what it turned out to be.
