OIL leak ???

Hello everyone,
I went away for 10 days and when I returned there was a large(10-12"circle) oil spot under the engine on the garage floor. It was off center and toward the passenger side of the engine. Any ideas where to start.....Thanks

Check your fluid levels first to find out whats low. then try and find where it's leaking from.

Possibly power steering hoses...

I had the same thing happen and it sounds like yours is in the same area as mine was....

I usualy start with some degreaser on the stain. If that don't work I use a little solvant. Failing that I would park my truck in differant places each night until the stain is covers the entire floor, that way you don't notice the satin any more. Oh and don't forget to add oil. I think of it as constant oil change.
