Mine has had a small leak for years. Leaves a spot about the size of a silver dollar most often. I find if I roll into a DIY carwash and powerwash the bottom, the drip stops for several months. So I guess it has to accumulate somewhere before it starts leaving spots. Using 20w-50 slows it down noticeably. Otherwise, when I park it at the apartments I live in, I just slide a drip pan under it and call it a day. LMAO!

I'm not pulling the engine for any reason. If it gets to that point, I'll pay a truck to take it to the local scrappers.
