Oil leak. Though it was oil pan gasket. Cleaned area found oil coming from above oil pan. Started engine and saw drip starting from oil filter adpter.
I have replaced this 3 times. I'm working with the dealership to a better conclusion.
Common place for oil leak. Cheap rubber oring. Bolt is in difficult place.
Have yet to repair. Major problem getting bolt broken lose to replace seals.
