Well just moved my 2007 Astoria further back in the driveway where it has been for about 10 days, after returning from a 10 day 2,500 mile trip.
Fresh oil leak in the driveway where engine would have been with little drips the whole way back to its new spot.
When we looked under could not see anything dripping, but put a drip pan under where the oil pan plug is.

Luckily was fine the whole trip.
Possibly the oil plug loose?

Sue, Have you changed the oil recently, maybe after the trip?? There should at least be a drip hanging from the plug if that's where the leak is at. Wipe it off clean and keep a close watch on it. John H....

John H..no we haven't changed the oil for awhile. I tried to look under when we got it back up in its spot and thought I saw one drip from the plug. I will go check the pan in a little while to see if anything else dripped.
It looked really fresh like a puddle when we first backed it up, almost like it happened when we started it up.

George Henry..I know what you mean! Now I have oil spots on my driveway. We put cat litter over it but guess they will be there for a long time.

Thanks for the responses, Sue
