Noticed a small oil leak popped up on the bottom of my oil pan a few weeks ago, seems to have grown a decent bit so investigated, see photos: https://photos.app.goo.gl/zkXDdqUozQe8cZBD7 .
I drove it on Sunday and today is Tuesday, see the size of the 'spill' for size reference. My two thoughts are
a) The washer on the drain plug needs replacing (I didnt touch this after changing oil even though manual says to)
b) Oil is SEEPING through my oil pan as a result of corrosion. This sounds ridiculous at first, but I've had a look around and there doesnt seem to be any constant stream coming from above, furthermore, the whole front section of the pan has corrosion on it and oil seems to coat this bit (higher than the plug itself). Is this even possible? If so I dont like the look of it!
See the photos, Any wisdom appreciated! I wonder if it is the latter what chance I got of bringing this back... any? It doesn't look horrendous to change, and there seem to be some oil pans on RockAuto at least.
PS sorry about all the google photos links, the forum and my PC dont like uploading photos all the time.
