2014 oil leak?

Just notice some oil in my garage and something is going on, will take to the dealer Tomorrow but would like to hear back... the oil or whatever it is, it's kinda brownish color, not really dark but not too clear as well, but more clear than not.

Coolant is full, break fluid is full, oil level is good, my power steering fluid is really close to minimum level, so that might be something, I look around and other than what seems to be the engine oil filter and the area bellow it is pretty dry and no sign of leaks, looked from top and bottom.













what do you guys think? All the picures are from the front passenger side, where there is the opening, close to the left front wheel, all right bellow the filter pictured.

Re: 2014 oil leak?

Looks like it may be leaking from oil filter? My guess is it is loose or was overtightened. Have you had an oil change yet since new?

Re: 2014 oil leak?

Also If it has been changed recently there is always a chance the old oil filter gasket did not come off leaving two gaskets which would also cause a leak.

Re: 2014 oil leak?

my last oil change was about 60 days ago, haven't noticed anything before Today, oil level is good so I'd assume this is recent.

Taking to the dealer tomorrow morning, hopefully is just a filter loose or something like that.

Re: 2014 oil leak?

Hopefully so, but I'm sure that is all it is. Loose, overtight, or double gasket. Let us know the outcome. Good Luck.

Re: 2014 oil leak?

looks like some issue with the engine oil filter was replaced, I don't have details but I will ask when I get there to get the car, they added a bit of power steering fluid since it was at the min, but haven't found any leak.

will get more details on what went wrong with the oil filter

Re: 2014 oil leak?

leaking at the gasket, the service guy wasn't very clear on why exactly, filter was replaced and looking good so far, I will keep checking

Re: 2014 oil leak?

Make the tech wipe up the mess he made. Nothing worse than a sloppy oil change where they don't wipe off the spilled oil. Then you have it dripping onto your garage floor and wondering what the hell is leaking.

Re: 2014 oil leak?

Did your leak look like this picture ? (Hemi)

Also, do you still have a plastic cover for this access hole under the oil drain plug area?

Thank you
