just inside and to the front of the right tire. I took it to be serviced and they didn't find a leak. It does this after
a long drive. It is easily cleaned up and has an slick oily texture. Does anyone know what this could possibly be?

    Do you have to top up the coolant, power steering fluid, transmission fluid engine oil or any fluids between services? It only takes a little oil to make a mess. Sounds like an oil leak of some sort but anyone would be guessing until they could see the car first hand.

    I talked to a Saturn dealership yesterday and they think it is an oil pan leak because of the area. Do you think that is possible. I haven't noticed any lower oil levels previously but now is a larger amount. I will start check it, I just had the oil changed and they didn't say it was low but was leaking such a small amount I don't think it would have shown up. Now it will start showing up. thanks for responding.
